Kabinett trocken Pinot Blanc 2016

This German Pinot Blanc - Weissburgunder - shows yellow-gold in the glass. The nose is laden with minerals, like a driveway freshly rained upon. There are pears and peaches, but they fight to get through the wet rocks. The palate also puts minerality first, with pear juice coming through. The acidity is not very strong, but is zippy enough to carry a salad or shrimp cocktail. — 7 days ago

A stunning bottle of Kabinett. Wow. Stunning aromas of slate, green apple, apricot, vulcanized rubber, apple pie, so mineral, stunning depth and clarity to the aromas. Palate is rich and ripe but the sweetness is judged perfectly as is the awe inspiring purity and delicacy. What balance, poise and freshness but most important this is an exercise in delicacy. Intense structure as well. Great today. Better later. — 6 days ago

Glorious nose. Love where 2016’s are at the moment. Lemon, Meyer lemon, candied lemon and gorgeous slate. Classic Kabi. Palate is chewy and clean with a nice steely slatey character and finished with lemon and terrific mineral juiciness. Long and very complex with perfect balance. — 16 days ago

Kaseler Nies'chen Kabinett Riesling 2016

Thai night. Floral on the nose with honeysuckle, pineapple, and peach. Candied pineapple, green apple skins, and ginger dance on the palate with a nice sweetness to balance out the heat from the beef Pad Woon Sen (Thai hot level 3). — 2 days ago

Bernkasteler Lay Kabinett Mosel Riesling 2007

More an experiment to see if there is anything to be gained by cellaring German Kabinett Rieslings and the short answer is No. The bottom line is there is not much added complexity. Still as delicious as it was when young. This wine had a faint Light Machine Oil aroma like Sewing Machine oil which was not off putting - just added interest. I did a similar exercise with Guigal Cotes du Rhône opening one at 10 years of age. The wine will last the distance but no real gain in flavour profile. Millions of bottles of CdR made and best drunk young. — 11 days ago

Grab some of willi schaefer's 17 kabi if you get the chance. I think they're just released in Aus. Great candidate for the ages. Vintage may also be a contributing factor to your tasting notes - 07 can be quite flabby even for kabi. But tbh I haven't tasted Loosen kabi's with age. Have a couple of 05 Wehlener Sonnenuhr so we'll see...

But it sounds like the 07' Bernkasteler but might have a long way to go. Hahaha.

Kupp Faß 8 Kabinett Riesling 2015

So many conversations at once, it’s hard to clearly articulate. Remarkable and deep. Explosive fruit. Rubber ball and smokey flint. Peaches and apricot and table melting acid. So much, and so well balanced, you hardly notice what must be a dearth of subterranean residual sugar - must be at 7.5% ABV. — 14 days ago

NV is good, find the Ravines Sekt from the Finger Lakes, it's better than the PL IMHO, but the older PL vintage stuff is awesome, I have some bottles from the 80's & 90's all doing just fine.
