Clean mineral spring water and various tree fruit. The palate is subtle and elegant. It finishes longer than the power of the nose or palette would predict.

Absolutely beautiful! Heavily aromatic, with granny Smith apple, peach, ginger, lime peel and wet stone. A touch of petillance. It glides over the palate with a heavenly lightness of touch, gorgeous width and a dusting of icing sugar. The acidity follows through to the long and pleasing off-dry finish.

Another Dr. Loosen Kabinett, this time from Graacher Himmelreich, that after my foray into German Riesling a few weeks ago I was very excited to try. The conditions were laid of a Wednesday evening, a ‘send-off’ meal for my sister before she departed for university, and she elected for us to have an Indian takeaway. And hence, one of my most memorable food pairings was conceived: this wine, with fish pakora and raita sauce. No joke. Genuinely phenomenal. The wine continued to pair well with the main course and was beautiful on its own after the dinner. Notably less sweet, I thought, than the 2018 Wehlener, and totally quaffable.

Hook me up to this stuff on an IV drip.

Nicely developed Kabinett. For my taste this is in a very nice spot - some tertiary flavours but still very lively and light.

Beautiful in the sunshine. 7% alc. it's a two bottle type of wine.

I was expecting this to be a little more aromatic. The primaries are fading and the tertiaries are just developing. This is maybe a bottle to hold & revisit in a couple of years. Beautiful palate & sugar/acid balance.

The wine we were supposed to have had worn out Christmas Day goose. And with the smooth raisin and lychee flavours, I think it would have gone very well indeed!
