Very nice dry Riesling with well balanced fruity and petroleum notes, strong but gentle acidity and a pinch of sweetness — 2 months ago
This bomb ass cotton candy tarragon boi turned me into a wine boi. — a month ago
Minerality over fruit. Crunchy green apple fruit with hints of lime zest. Citric acid for days with unmistakable underripe green apple fruit. Dry to finish with acidity driving lingering finish. Paired well with slightly sweet Asian food. — 2 months ago
Complex, almost saline. Would go great with oysters. — 4 months ago
Punches wayyyy over it’s weight. Layers of light spring flowers, zingy green apple acidity, stony wet river rock texture. Am I a Riesling person now?! — a month ago
Brief notes from the VDP auctions, so take this with a grain of salt. Classic kabi and one of my favourites this auction. Juicy yellow stone fruits, herbs, racy acidity, impressive length. Very elegant.
NB: Kabi's from this set of auctions have been somewhat disappointing (looking at you Egon), but surprisingly, the Bad Krueznach auction delivered on some really classic and delicious kabi's, most of which went for reasonable prices. This kabi, the Goldloch from Joh. Bapt. Schafer (best value buy imo), the Kirchspiel from Groebe, Kai Schatzel's Pettenthal, and of course, the Keller Schubertslay. From the Mosel, I only really enjoyed the kabi's from Fritz Haag, Clemens Busch, and Grunhaus, but I felt they were playing on a lower level. Would be good to taste all these together again to compare. — 15 days ago
