Tasting Notes:

A textbook Kabinett: delicately fruity, juicy, and animating, the full Saar package! The wine is characterised by a lively interplay between fruitiness, acidity, and a slight sharpness and has scents of grapefruit and citrus. The taste leaves behind a lasting impression of bitter orange and kumquat; but also due to its laser-sharp cut. The wine is complex, creamy, and very succulent.

Wine of the week

“Winemaker Dorothee Zilliken might have been reading my mind (or looking in my wine rack) when she wrote, ‘Kabinett is always my favourite because it offers so much intensity of fruitiness and juiciness, but concomitant with a light alcohol level … so everybody can really ENJOY the bottle!”
