Very intense. Tart and fruity, but the fruit is more tropical than citrus. Ripping acidity but somehow still balanced, although I’m not sure by what. Long finish and great drink. — 7 days ago
Crisp green apple to taste. Great quality for the price. Pairs great with a mild cheese. Also delicious on its own. A crowd pleaser for new dry reisling drinkers. Brought out this wine with typical Sauvignon blanc drinkers and it was a big hit — a month ago
The prices are silly I know (550€ and 4550€ magnum ex-auction), but understandable. There's the Keller factor, plus it's the estate's first vintage from this amazing Mosel vineyard, which means crazy collectors are scrambling for even just one bottle of this kabinett. That's right... A kabinett! Having said all that, it's a damn good one and for me, the best kabi of the entire 2019 VDP auctions.
The 18' Schubertslay kabi comes off really classic for the style. Airy nose, not dissimilar to great Grünhäus' or Egon's. Peachy, floral, smokey, herbal, super salty. The palate's concentrated and very pure, as expected of KP. A serious palate dancer that finishes incredibly long, without even a sense of sweetness. It's really young, but I could drink so much of this at the moment. It's so precise and elegant, especially considering the vintage. What a wine!
I feel really privileged to have drank this wine and picked the fruits this year. The hardwork put in by the Keller's and Haart's in tending the 120+ year old vines really paid off - the fruits are some of the best rieslings I've ever seen. Again, I'll say the prices are crazy and perhaps even too much despite the effort (particularly for a wine I just want to keep drinking). Some say it's only for this vintage, but I'm certain it'll never be inexpensive. At any rate, I think this wine will go down as one of the landmark kabi's of recent times. — 2 months ago
South Germany is beginning to do Pinot Noirs.
Vineyard is know for Pinot Blancs.
Tart, but not bitter. Long finish.
Complexity with dark fruit.
Part of red wine mafia!! One of my favorites. — 2 days ago
Very fruity, tropical and citrus. Medium body, good balance, a hint of carbonation, very nice and refreshing. — a month ago
