BALTHASAR RESS HATTENHEIMER SCH┼░TZENHAUS REINGAU RIESLING KABINETT - 2002


Kabinett in the German wine classification system refers to the lowest level of ripeness. Kabinett white wine tends to be lighter in style and not as sweet as Spatlese. The name "Kabinett" comes from the locked cabinets in the cellars of the old estates in which the finest wines were kept.

TASTING NOTES:

This Riesling has the nose of a pineapple Lifesaver candy, honey and petroleum with flavors of peach, citrus and a hint of caramel. 10% alcohol.

SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:

88 PTS
Well rounded white Riesling with crisp and refreshing acidity. Sleek mouthfeel, medium bodied but a bit tart on the finish.
