Honey, white peach and a creamy flavour, but it’s still elegant and fine. It would be easier tasting at the Schaefers if everything didn’t taste so damned good.
A beautiful if rather ripe nose of pear, quince, herbs and spices. Firmly structured and leaves a great feeling of ripe fruit and fine herbs in the long and racy finish. This is one of the few real kabinetts of the vintage, but one which is still marked by acidity and will need a few years. 91 Points – Mosel Fine Wines, 2026-38
A superb bottle, with the delicacy and filigree one expects from this pradikat. The lovely nose wafts in a very pure mix of grapefruit, lime, a touch of wild yeasts, a beautiful base of slate, a whisper of petrol and a lovely topnote of violet. The palate is pure, medium full and succulent at the core, with lovely backend mineral drive, bright acids and excellent length and grip on the complex finish. 92+ Points – John Gilman, 2023-60
