Winery Notes: "The historic Karthäuserhof estate is located just before the confluence of the Ruwer and Mosel rivers, nestled along a side valley adjacent to the small village of Eitelsbach. Recent findings indicate that the spot was a settlement practicing viticulture as early as Roman times. Named Karthäuserhof, or "Farm of the Carthusians," it was founded officially as a Carthusian monastery in the 11th century. In 1811, Napoleon secularized the region and the property was auctioned off in Paris. It was bought by Valentin Leonardy and, miraculously, through the trials and tribulations of over 200 years, has remained in the same family. Karthauserhof's Kabinett bottling is perhaps the finest (and certainly one of the last) classically styled Kabinett Riesling in the recent age of easily-achieved ripeness. This racy and invigorating house style of Kabinett wine from their beautifully sloped, estate monopole vineyard in the cool Ruwer region is extraordinarily complex and long-lived with its signature profile of citrus, peach, and sweet basil."
