About

91

"This Kabinett was made from fruit harvested with Oechsle degrees in the low 90s, i.e. rather high levels by usual Kabinett standards. And yet, this wine delivers some nice fresh Kabinett-styled scents of herbs, apple, mint and chalky minerals on the nose, good presence and a gorgeous off-dry feel on the palate (it only has 35 g/l of residual sugar) as well as a nice and thirst-cleansing feel in the finish."

Product Description:

"What more can be said of this wine than it is near-perfect Mosel kabinett? Cherries, nectarine, kiwi, citrus zest and slate with 35 grams of residual sugar, perfectly balanced with the acidity and minerality. Röttgen always shows the most slate influence of all of the Winningen vineyards. In the extremely steep, small terraces, grey and blue slate intermingle with a distinct iron-rich red slate. The various sandstone and chalk plots are very small, even by Mosel Terrace standards." Importer
