Riesling Kabinett Alte Reben Niedermenniger Sonnenberg

2018

43g/l RS, 10.4g acid, 9% alc. From 50-year-old vines planted in 1967. Those are sensational stats relective of a sensational wine. Saar-specific fruit and florals -- green apples, bright florals, honey-drizzled lemon -- zoom through the palate at high velocity. The petrol notes are already peeking through. This is the quintessential Kabinett of the estate. A must-have. 330cs made.

"The 2018er Niedermenniger Sonnenberg Kabinett Alte Reben was harvested at 86° Oechsle on 50-year-old vines and was fermented down to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar. It offers a delicately ample nose made of pear, melon, citrusy fruits and fine herbs. The wi ne has the delicate presence of a light Spätlese on the mouthwatering palate and leaves a gorgeous feel of citrusy fruits, vineyard peach and wet stone in the mouthwatering and deliciously tart finish. The after-taste is all about wet stone, white peach, minty herbs and lemon zest. This is a beautifully airy expression of light Spätlese! 2028-2048"
