    Max Kilburg Riesling Kabinett Goldtropfchen 2020

    We have not tasted the 2020ers as they were only recently bottled. We were sent samples of vintages 2017, 2018 and 2019. Across the board the wines showed impressive depth and clarity. They are crystalline and clear, with ripe and juicy fruit, great balance and cut. They can have a glycerin-rich flair to them, a textural glaze that is launched across the palate by impressive energy and acidity. We've included the Mosel Fine Wines reviews for the two 2019er Kabinetts, though the 2020ers will likely have a bit more finesse and delicacy.

    2019 Kilburg Ohligsberg Kabinett:

    "This was made from fruit harvested early at 80 Oechsle on up to 40-year-old vines, and was fermented down to fully fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (58 g/l). It offers a rather reduced nose of spices and herbs, with some citrusy and cassis elements wrapped into riper orange zest. The wine is precise, sharp, and hugely elegant on the palate and leaves a stunning feel of fruits, minerals, and herbal elements in the focused finish. The after-taste is mouthwatering, deep, persistent, and gorgeously light-footed. This is a stunning Kabinett in the making."

    2019 Kilburg Goldtröpfchen Kabinett:

    "This was made from fruit harvested early at 83 Oechsle from up to 40-year-old-vines in a parcel in the Niederemmel part of the vineyard and was fermented down to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (54g/l). It offers a still rather reduced nose made of residual scents from its spontaneous fermentation, pear, citrusy fruits, greengage, elderflower, cassis, herbs and spices. The wine is gorgeously playful and superbly precise on the subtly creamy yet nicely racy palate and leaves a finely sizzled feel of whipped cream, cassis, citrus, and spices. The wine is cut along the lines of a great 'drinking Auslese from the 1990s' and is a huge success!"
