    August 30, 2020 - Lovely sweetish nose of citrus, white flowers and green apples. Wonderfully balanced in the mouth. Neither sweetness nor acidity are overdone - very Goldilocks. Good length. Very mineral, slatey palate. Light touch overall. Superbly drinkable. My favourite of the three '16 kabinetts I've tried recently.

    April 30, 2020 - This took an hour of air and some warming to show what it has. What a Kabinett! At 8% alcohol and with an amount of sugar that does not seem to exceed that of a feinherb to any great extent, it is a classic Kabinett. The aromas are, however, quite extraordinarily complex: smoky, floral, fruity (peach), sponti, citrus, mineral and green herbs. Layered taste with creamy texture, great balance. Such a wonderful wine!

    April 18, 2020 - Lauer is know for his off dry wines, feinherb and tbf, but his pradikats can be sensational. This Kabinett is terrific. It has lime citrus, and a hint of tangerine peel, and it is full slate and stone impressions, it is racy, zippy, tart, happy, and as always, with so many of the Lauer wines, something wild! Love it!

    June 16, 2019 - Star bright medium lemon-green. Nose is of ripe tree fruit (red delicious) with some stone fruit notes as well. Palate is concentrated with medium sweetness and m(+) acid. Length is m(+). This is a well-made, ripe example but RS is slightly higher than acid allows (for my taste). Should probably hold and revisit in 3-5 years. If drinking now, benefits from a few minutes in decanter and should be chilled.

    June 16, 2018 - Served blind
    Pale gold green
    Very light aromas,
    On palate, light sweet Macintosh apple with just enough acidity to keep it vibrant

    I would hold for a while longer
