"Goes with everything. Even curry!"
"Absolutely delicious - no unpleasant acidity - really well made."
"Great value for money for such a good Riesling."
Harald and Maria Rauen took over this 4th generation estate of 13 hectares in 1990. The 50-year-old vines grow on the steep slopes of Middle Mosel and rival the best in the area for their delicacy, minerality and wonderful wildflower flavours. Grapes are hand-picked in mid-October and gently crushed before macerating for 4 hours on the berry skins. Gentle expansion on the lees provides a really fine, fruity character. Incredibly good value for money. Hard to find a Riesling Kabinett of this calibre at this price.
Pale gold with green tinge, peachy, floral nose and a beautifully clean, mineral palate packed with stone fruits, meadow flowers and a lingering, refreshing and fruity finish.
