Riesling Kabinett Feinherb Niedermenniger Herrenberg

2018

25g/l RS, 9.8g acid, 10% alc. A red slate site like the Sonnenberg, picked from a single parcel of vines from 1969. Light and fresh with a keen phenolic texture on the palate, less yellow fruit and more granny smiths and crytalline fruit overall. Lightly sweet up front but serisously dry at the finish. Energy, energy, energy!

"The 2018er Niedermenniger Herrenberg Riesling Kabinett Feinherb comes from 45-year-old vines in the Kasselsheidchen part of the vineyard, and was fermented down to 25 g/l of residual sugar. It offers a focused and precise nose made of passion fruit, pear, aniseed herbs, whipped cream, and bitter citrusy elements. The wine offers some highly attractive scents of pear, passion fruit and chalky minerals on the razor sharp and drytasting palate. The racy energy of the wine carries over right into the precise, mouthwatering and delicately tart but also slightly intense finish. We would let this outstanding off-dry Riesling rest for a while in order for its nuances to come through more clearly and the tartness in the after-taste to melt away. 2023-2033"
