Weiser Künstler Trarbacher Schloßberg Kabinett 2020
From the importer-
This intimacy comes through in the wines. In fact, if we were to point to one producer who carries a similar message of staggering complexity and simple charm, it would be Willi and Christoph Schaefer. Both estates are tiny; both estates seem to easily, naturally make wines that are ethereal, bubbling with purity and subtle nuance. Both estates produce haunting, magical little wines that are worth their weight in gold.
The 2020er Trarbacher Schlossberg Riesling Kabinett was made from fruit harvested at 86° Oechsle on the original Schlossberg hill and was fermented down to barely fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (40 g/l). It offers a subtly ample nose of melon, white peach, and a hint of whipped cream. The wine is gorgeously juicy and subtly creamy on the beautifully light-footed and playful palate and leaves a barely fruity feel in the nice and persistent finish. The aftertaste is a light as a fresh water and yet packed with delicious flavors. The aromatic precision and lightness of this Kabinett are simply remarkable!
