August Kesseler R Riesling Kabinett 2017
There's an earthy component to the aroma, but the palate reveals intense minerality. This will appeal to fans of the more austere style. Try with food for better context. Best from 2020 through 2025.
August Kesseler's 2017 Rheingau Riesling Kabinett R is a 10% alcohol classic of the region. Bright in color and flavors, with nice reduction and purity on the nose, this is a light, fine, filigreed Riesling whose finely racy acidity is well balanced by lush white fruit and some grams of unfermented sugar. The wine has stimulating grip, and the added sulfites give a nice, lean and piquant style. Very fresh and forever young. Tasted November 2018.
