Occasionally we are presented with a wine of such splendid kabinett beauty that objective and impartial are hard to maintain. This is one such wines. Smoky apricots, floral purity in the form of lilacs and rainwater, racy acidity and a crisp stony enduring minerality. Fanciful, fantastical; nuanced flavors on the palate linger into a final candied-lemon kiss on the finish. And downright delicious too. Leave this one to mature in the cellar, as all these markers are just the beginning. Good things come to those who wait.
In such a baby, it’s hard to say where the journey will take you but for now this elegant kabinett is an ideal companion with scallops, shrimp and assorted soft cheeses.
