der Kabinett Riesling 2018

🏅 Rating 91/100 (4,1⭐)

First nose is tight and reserved. With time, aeration and temperature, it opens up with tropical fruits: pineapple. Some herbs. So concentrated on the palate. The residual sugar (45 g/l) nicely integrates with racy acidity of Riesling. Harvested at 86° Oechsle it is then fermented with ambient yeasts to low 9% Alc. Love the style of this Kabinett: elegance and finesse. Accentuated finish. Solar vintage, indeed. Huge potential ahead.

Anna Reimann together with her husband in 2016 acquired an existing winery and 5ha of vineyards. A year later they bought Johann Peter Reinert Estate and expanded to northern Saar vineyards. This is definitely a rising star and the address to watch.

Die Gärtnerin Saar Riesling 2017

Blossoms and wet slate. Feinherb. Bit of SO2 blows off quickly. Concentration and silky smooth texture to burn...which seem to be the tell on the best 2017s. Cantzheim’s first vintage with the full array of vineyards purchased from Reinert...and a fantastic beginning! #saar #feinherb #riesling #cantzheim — 5 years ago
