Schlossgut Diel Riesling Kabinett

Goldloch
With nearly ten acres (4 ha) Schlossgut Diel is by far the largest owner of this legendary steep site. One explanation of the name is that miners searched for gold here in the 17th century. Another is that the wines made from this site are worth their weight in gold. The key to success is in the soil. A thin layer of clay over bedrock provides power, elegance and depth to the wines.

Tasting Notes

A delicious and (again) perfectly balanced Riesling; glorious fragrance, talc and golden-delicious apples; I don’t remember a better edition of this wine; it’s the perfect classic not-hardly-sweet Kabinett. “Great drinkyness,” as Caroline says. Stretched taut but neither austere nor lean. A Riesling Ideal. — Terry Theise
