2019 Weiser-Künstler Enkircher Ellergrub Kabinett

Posted by Joe Salamone

Ellergrub is Weiser-Künstler's top site.

While it may not have the same name recognition as Wehlener Sonnenuhr or Bernkasteler Doctor, many German wine fanatics place Ellergrub among the best in the Middle Mosel.

Weiser-Künstler's steeply terraced parcel in Ellergrub is home to hundred year old ungrafted vines. Their Ellergrub Kabinett, mainly sourced mainly from these ancient vines, is perennially one of our favorites in all of Germany. 

Today we're very happy to offer Weiser-Künstler's 2019 Enkircher Ellergrub Kabinett for $39.95 per bottle. 

Across the board Weiser-Künstler produced an amazing 2019 collection, wines of stunning clarity and harmony. The Kabinett highlights what makes the vintage so special. It possesses brilliant purity, riveting cut and serious intensity. We love how the Kabinett comes across as packed with complexity and at the same time completely weightless. It shows the large-scaled vintage with rigor and radiance. 

Weiser-Künstler is a very small estate and is widely held to be one of the greats of the Mosel. The Ellergrub Kabinett is one of their most sought after wines. Quantities are very limited and we expect a quick sell out.

Mosel Fine Wines:

"The 2019er Enkircher Ellergrub Riesling Kabinett was made from fruit harvested on largely un-grafted vines still trained on single pole, and was fermented down to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (45 g/l). It offers a beautifully creamy and ripe nose of whipped almond cream, yellow peach, pear, pineapple, some earthy spices, cardamom, and violet. Ripe fruits add to the sensation of smoothness and richness on the juicy but sweet palate. However, a kick of zesty acidity gives cut and precision to the finish. This “big” wine by Kabinett standards truly shines through its flavorsome precision in the delicately tart and very persistent aftertaste. This gorgeous fruity-styled wine only needs a few years of patience in order to fully shine."
