From vines planted in 1902, this leads with a fetching nose of fresh apple and lightly cooked strawberry tinged with fennel. The fruit is adeptly supported by sweetness on a silken palate. Relatively low residual sugar by currently prevailing standards makes for slightly higher alcohol (at 9%) than one usually encounters in today’s sweet Kabinetts, but, almost needless to say, 9% allows for a delightful sense of levity. The luscious finish is mouthwateringly salt-tinged and vividly underlain with classic wet stone. (DS)
From ungrafted vines that are over 100 years old, Loewen's 2016 (Longuicher) Herrenberg Riesling Kabinett opens with a clear, very aromatic, almost Gewürztraminer-like bouquet with rose petal and lychee aromas intermixed with fine, elegant slate aromas. On the palate, this is an extremely aromatic and sweet but elegant Kabinett with racy-piquant acidity and mouth-filling fruit, with good salinity on the finish. Tasted March 2018 (AP #6). (SR)
