(From 2010 Vintage) The result is a wine of honeyed sweetness, with rapier-like acidity and a wonderful lightness of touch.
(From 2011 Vintage) This was a very nice Kabinett. The nose showed charming little notes of white fruit and lime zest and little hints of white flowers underlined with chalk and slate and all sorts of little minerally notes. I liked that. The palate was showing quite beautifully.
Wine & SpiritsThe 1989 is an unctuous and viscous wine, with a chewy, heavy-weight style, low acidity, mamoth size, and splendidly concentrated fruit suggestive of superripe, honeyed pineapples. Perhaps it comes down to personal taste, but in this case the 1989 seems to have even more complexity and botrytis than the excellent 1988. Anticipated maturity 1993-2010.
