Picked ahead of even this year’s generic Riesling, this delivers scents and infectious juiciness of fresh lime, apple and white peach with cooling mint and fennel as well as crushed stone and pungently smoky struck flint accents. At 9.5 grams of acidity, there is a vibrant and animating cast to the wine’s buoyant, subtly silken palate. Invigorating nips of cress and mouthwatering mineral minerality add to the irresistible appeal of a vibrant, refreshingly sustained finish. (The preceding note was taken from a natural cork-finished bottle, representative of the majority of bottles. A screwcapped bottling tasted alongside displayed more pronounced salinity but marginally less silken texture, vivid fruit or cooling green herbal character. It also introduced an overt albeit subtle charge of tingling CO2.)(DS)
The hint of funk and the spirtz add excitement to this light and succulent riesling that's brimming with lemony freshness. Drink now or hold. Screw cap.
From a steep, terraced, southwest-facing plot on weathered phyllite slate, the 2016 Nahe Riesling Felseneck Kabinett was picked early at 83° Oechsle. It is a lovely, clear, piquant and crystalline Kabinett with lush fruit and a long, stimulatingly salty finish. It is light, fresh and buoyant, a highly elegant and filigreed Kabinett classic at its best. It is ripe but nevertheless vital and piquant. The finish is long and aromatic. A great Kabinett from the Nahe. (SR)
Intense, electric acidity lends firmness to this refreshing and complex version. Flavors of apple, lanolin and quince are sprinkled with smoked sea salt for added charm. Maintains focus and shows depth and harmony on the persistent finish. Drink now through 2024.
