Community Tasting Notes (12) Median Score: 92 points

  • Bottle #2 of 12. Still excruciatingly primary. Wow. One of the best Kabinetts I've ever experienced. Hugely complex and super refined nose - verbena, lemongrass, green tea, lemon, lime. All things citrus, white, yellow, green, floral and sweet. Waxy, slippery, silky, dense and etheric all at the same time on the palate. Deft - in every way. Just a fantastic, mind-blowingly scrumptious bottle of wine. The last sips in the glass after two hours started to show deeper white fruits and a smoky almost tropical flower sweet fragrance and attack, followed by a perfectly balanced and saline dry finish. Unbelievably great Kabinett in the making. 93pts pure quality, 95pts personal preference.

  • Color: Pale straw.

    Nose: Electric---you can immediately smell the tension between tart lemony acid and honeyed peach sweetness. There's also a strong spine of rocky mineral and a faint dusty/leathery/earth character. No petrol or sponti notes to speak of. Fresh, pure, and clean.

    Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, lively and with some extract.

    Palate: Pretty much exactly what the nose foretold. Absolutely delicious, with a pure honeyed sweetness perfectly balanced against the fierce lemon-lime acidic structure. Vibrates with energy. The finish is long and lipsmacking, extending the sweet-acid combo long after you swallow. This is where the mineral comes through as well, adding a subtle savory dimension to the afterglow.

    What a delightful bottle of wine. Energetic, balanced, nuanced, and most of all insanely delicious. Tremendous value. Great labels these guys have, too.

  • Drank across two days. Initially the nose was a little mute and, although there was a touch of sweetness to the mid-palate, a lovely stony transparency rendered the finish almost dry. Much more aromatic on day two with the palate seeming a little sweeter. A cracking kab; great value, too.

  • interesting aromas, something vaguely cheesey in there among the fruit, but in a good way. The fruit is lovely and the minerals pure. The acidity is there too. Delicious wine, seems like it has a bright future too.

  • Retasted after a first tasting in June 2012. Very pale, light color, almost as clear as water. Spontaneous fermentation nose still very prominent, followed by peach aromas. Medium bodied wine, very ripe, aromas of peach, pear and some cream. Low acidity, less prominent than in 2012. Short finish. Later, I started getting some strawberry aromas. Liked this wine a lot. Less refreshing than in 2012.
