SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Apr 30, 2010
Beeswax and fresh apple flavors mark this racy eiswein. Picks up an earthy note on the finish, which is slightly coarse now, so give this some time to integrate. Best from 2014 through 2032. 50 cases made.

Where It's From

Region / Mosel

View more wines from Mosel

Mosel is home to some of Germany's finest white wines, a majority of which are Rieslings. The region surrounds the Mosel, Saar, and Ruwer rivers, and the soils in the region (full of Devonian Slate) make it perfect for growing Riesling grapes. The resulting wines are known for their aromatic floral bouquets and pronounced minerality.

Country / Germany

View more wines from Germany

The German wine-making tradition is long and illustrious, dating back to as early as AD 800. And for a country just slightly smaller than Montana, Germany produces and consumes a great deal of wine (it's the seventh-largest producer and sixth-highest consumer).

Germany is situated at the most northerly latitude at which grapes can ripen; the winters are cold and the growing season short, all of which, incidentally, are nearly identical to the Finger Lakes Region of New York. Most of its wine regions are situated in central and southwestern Germany. The most significant are the Rheingau, Rheinhessen, Rheinpfalz, Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Nahe, Franken and Baden.

The Riesling grape is king in Germany, even though it represents only 20% of total plantings: Müller-Thurgau (a Riesling-silvaner cross) has the most, followed by the red grapes Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) and Dornfelder. In good years and in the care of master winemakers, Riesling makes one of the greatest white wines in the world, with a perfect balance of sugar and acid, exquisite fruit and fragrance and with considerable potential for aging.

Frankly off-dry, but with a bright lemony acidity and good freshness, this is an appealing introduction to Mosel riesling. After the fruit salad flavors on the front palate comes some dill and parsley character at the dry finish. Drink now. Screw cap. (Stuart Pigott)

An alcohol content of 9.5% signals that this is one of the many vintage 2018 Kabinetts whose authors have allowed fermentation to proceed a bit further than usual so as to avoid extraneous or otherwise excess sweetness. In the event, this Kabinett is still very obviously sweet, and its syrupy midpalate expression of pear and pineapple—anticipated on the nose—seems decidedly more Spätlese- than Kabinett-like. Fortunately, mint suffusion has a welcome cooling effect. The feel is glossy but with some sense of buoyancy. Nut brittle with it bittersweet and caramel aspects pulls the finish in a confectionary direction. I’ve no doubt this will outlive my “drink by” date but I’m skeptical of its meriting longer holding. (David Schildknecht)
