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!
Konstantin Weiser and Alexandra Künstler are as soulful as the vineyards they farm; this is a micro-estate with only 3ha under vine. Konstantin and Alexandra do everything here, working in the vineyards daily. Situated in Traben-Trarbach, many of their vineyards fell into obscurity in the latter half of the 20th century, which is not necessarily a bad thing. The fact is that these vines have not seen the “modernization” that many sites in the Mosel have, which means these cliff-vineyards still have their jutting, ladder-like terraces. On these terraces, they have a high density of very old, un-grafted vines. Weiser-Künstler makes wines exceptional Prädikat wines, but they also make dry wines – dainty angels carved from mineral and slate that feel like porcelain in their weight and purity. As of 2015, they are moving towards complete organic certification.
