This is powerhouse Riesling - this is one hundred percent Vollenweider - The Kabinett from the Wolfer Goldgrube is Vollenweider through and through. Almost nothing but damp stone and yeast on the nose. No cheesy primary fruit, nothing embellished, nothing lovely or even lavish in the aroma. This is pure slate and only pure slate. The palate is literally blindsided by the massive stony salty minerality. The fruity sweetness typical of Kabinett succumbs to the extract and is almost masked by it. The acidity grabs hold and tears a small wound in the palate, where the fruit briefly slips in, only to be immediately flushed out again. It's good to drink now, but this wine won't reach its optimum for another ten or twenty years. An electrically charged Riesling Kabinett that is looking for its equal, but most likely will not find. An unconditional original...and absolute vintage top!
In 1999 the Swiss Daniel Vollenweider dedicated himself to a dream: to run his own vineyard and to produce crystal clear, straightforward and yet deeply sensual Mosel-Riesling.All wines from Weingut Vollenweider
