Tasting Notes:

The 2019er Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett was made from fruit harvested early in a cool parcel of the vineyard at 93° Oechsle and fermented down in stainless steel to full fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (62 g/l). It offers an aromatic and ripe nose of yellow peach, pear, almond milk, candied tangerine, star anise, and a hint of banana flambéed. The wine proves sweet and ripe on the palate, where the juicy fruits give it more than a hint of Spätlese Schmelz. This smooth and juicy side carries over into the long and structured finish. This fruity-styled wine will need a couple of years to integrate its sweetness and fully deliver upon its underlying finesse.

The 2019 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett is bright, precise and elegant on the complex, refined, beautifully clear and flinty nose. Lush, refined and salty-piquant on the palate, this is a salty, crunchy and stimulating Kabinett with a long and intense finish. Bottled with 9.5% alcohol and 60 grams of residual sugar. Tasted at the domain in September 2020.

So juicy, yet so fine, this is a "light" wine with very good ripeness, but more importantly a lot of finesse, the long finish brilliant and filigree. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
