About

90-92

"From 80-year-old vines in the Ur-Himmelreich picked at 85° to 86° Oechsle in the last week of September, the 2018 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett Trocken doesn't show much right now due to its strong reduction, but the terroir character already shines through. The wine displays bright, fresh and flinty-herbal slate and citrus aromas, while the tropical fruit of the vintage seems to be reduced here and rather classic. On the palate, this is a straight, fresh, well-structured and lingeringly salty Himmelreich Kabinett with 11% alcohol. Tasted in March 2019 from a sample that was ready to be bottled in the next four weeks."
