What a showing for one of my favorite wines I’ve ever imported. Really drinking well at 12 years old. Stunning nose. Transportation. Lemon lime rock candy, stunning slate and soil/rock aromas. So clean and so pure. Palate is deep and so rich and chock full of minerals with an insane refined texture. OMG this is so good. Brilliant acidity and purity. No rush but man what a great showing. Long mineral aftertaste clings and clings. — 6 days ago

Great balance, between primary and secondary notes. Good acid with a touch of rs. The palate almost felt creamy. There was a slight funk and oxidative quality adding more dimension to the wine. Petrol notes. Long finish — 6 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

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

2nd time with this wine. I arguably under marked it again. The Estate no longer exists and has been absorbed into JJ Prum, Loosen, etc. Pleasure. — 20 hours ago

Vintage 2016 cuvee 35 which fermented for more than a year, it seems to have more depth, more smell than cuvee 30. Awesome balance — 5 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.

Light orange. Beautiful rounded fruit with orange peel, petrol, floral notes. Softly sweet with crazy complexity, glycerin and a soaring, super long finish. Amazing stuff and decades ahead. — 6 days ago
