Enjoyable, but definitely not the finest example of Egon’s Kabi for me. It’s the petrol character that irritated me - although not potent, it should never be present for a Riesling this young especially from Egon. I put it down to storage and transport once more. That aside, the 19’ Kabi was a crowd-pleaser. The fruit profile leaned more towards pears and peaches instead of citruses, and it had a little more sweetness and presence than usual, so the 17’ iteration was definitely a more food Kabi than aperitif Kabi. Fruity, racy, and especially saline on day two, it’s a banger of a wine with Cantonese food.

You can tell this is a really well made wine that already tastes good. I was left with the feeling this will be amazing in ten years and I possible served it too cold. Drank with lobster, pea panna cotta and parmesan puree.
