Everybody is enjoying the warmer temperatures and fine weather we are enjoying and when the sun finally starts warming us up it’s time to bring out a fine spring wine! We have gone to one of our favorite white wine countries, Germany. The grape is of course Riesling and we are grabbing a bottle of kabinett!
A few years ago we traveled to Germany to learn more about their fine wines and there we also were taught the Prädikat system and you can see how it is defined in our video from that episode.
One of the Prädikats is Kabinett. This has the lowest level of sugar content of the Prädikat wines and is often the one that is priced the lowest. Her you can find some superb value wines, like the one we have as this week's wine.
Schätzel have since 2007 been framed using biodynamic principles. The vineyards are located just outside the village of Nierstein in Rheinhessen and they produce a range of superb wines that are elegant and often have low alcohol and a super acidity that complements the natural sweetness of the Riesling grape.
Schätzel Riesling Kabinett - 175,- kr
Yellowish to green color. Very good scent of apples, citrus and some elder flower. Fresh, fruity with a delicious sweetness. Very well balanced. In the mouth you get the same apples as in the scent. Long, very good aftertaste. This is lovely by itself but there are a range of foods that this will be perfect with. Try it with spicy asian food. It’s going to be great with sushi and cheeses like Raclette, mature cheddar or even a good aged Jarlsberg.
