Schätzel makes some of the best classically style Kabinett in Germany. Gorgeous nose. Green apple, mineral, floral, citrus, hint of tropical fruits, vulcanized rubber in a good way, palate is just unreal. Sweet, yet mineral and with awesome texture and terrific juiciness. Clean and mineral finish with loads of fruit and complexity. Stunning freshness and palate presence. This is top class. — 17 days ago
A great, nicely aged Riesling from Mosel. Bold and smooth with high acidity, still.
Nicely balanced with citrus, lime juice, green apples, minerals, spices, herbs, orange peel and sea salt.
Buttery and off dry, with a long finish. Very easy to drink.
This 37 year old is drinking so nicely now, and I don't think this was expensive back then. So nice to see how this evolved into a wonderful wine with time.
I paired it with a dish of spicy Tuna Tartare.

Tonight I have opened the 2016 Hofgut Falkenstein Krettnacher Euchariusberg Riesling Kabinett. This is from the Mosel/Saar region of Germany with Alc. 8.5% vol.
On the nose there is apple, peach, pear, lime, petroleum, slate, steel and citrus blossom.
On the palate there is mango, green apple, white peach, wet slate, petroleum and a good minerality.
The wine is delicious and light to medium bodied with a racy medium to medium + acidity that leads into a medium + to long fruit filled finish. You can drink this all day long and it would be gone before you knew it. Please stay safe and enjoy your weekend. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 16 days ago
2011. Full package for Mosel. Nice depth of fruit. Certainly has ripe apricot and lime rind and candied orange slices, licorice and only hints of slate-petrol notes. Palate is med-light with pretty length and brightness from acid and CO2. Maybe I got lucky in comparison to others. — 11 days ago
This bottling was reduced in volume not only directly by frost but also by Schneider having utilized some of the fruit from his “Kabinett” parcels in this year’s dry Klamm bottling. But he says he might do the same thing another year, because demand for Kabinett, indeed for sweet wine generally, continues to fall-off at his estate. Apple and pear are wreathed in honeysuckle on a fetching nose, and the palate displays correspondingly luscious fruit juiciness as well as wafting inner-mouth perfume, both reinforced by judicious sweetness. There is an impressive sense of extract-richness despite the wine’s sense of lift. A bright, zesty influx of fresh lime lends refreshment and tang to the lingering finish.

This is an absolutely fantastic Riesling! Basically a fruit cornucopia. (Apple, lime, pineapple, apricot)
Flowers on the nose with lots of minerality. Balanced acidity. Brilliant!
