The sleek, modern lines of elegantly balanced fruits skate seamlessly from vineyard peach to pineapple to melon and back, accented with a delicate spice and grassy herbality.
But it's the lithe minerality and almost velvety texture that truly steal the show.
A vibrating acidity binds the individual pieces together into a beautiful cohesive whole and linger into a long, grapefruit finish.
A bit high strung in its youth, but 5-10 years in the cellar will reveal a gorgeous example of all that makes a kabinett good.
The high concentration of the vintage blended with the nimble beauty of a kabinett means that this is a versatile companion with most every meal. Try spicy Asian dishes such as grilled crab. .
