2020 Riesling ALTENBERG Kabinett, Stefan Müller
Reifer Apfel, Mandarine, Mirabelle und Pfirsich. Filigran und feinfruchtig.
"The 2020er Krettnacher Altenberg Riesling Kabinett was made from fruit picked at 78° Oechsle in the central part of the vineyard (Klassenbörchen) and was fermented down to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (43 g/l). It proves delicately minty and rather reserved at first and needs a couple of minutes in the glass to reveal scents of greengage, apple, lemon, grapefruit, and herbs. The wine has great energy and freshness on the palate where plenty of zesty fruits coat the underlying fruitiness of the wine. The finish is tight, linear, and beautifully persistent. The aftertaste proves mouthwatering, precise, and refreshing. This superbly light, racy, and playful Kabinett with an off-dry rather than fruity-styled balance. 2026-2038" (Jean Fisch und David Rayer in Mosel Fine Wines 57)
