Masterclass „Riesling Kabinett“

Freitag, 19. Mai 2023, 14:30–16:00 Uhr
Kongresshaus, Room: S4, 1st floor

No other wine on our planet manages the art of bringing together a complete and complex cosmos of flavours on the head of a pin – in other words, in a sip of eight or nine percent alcohol by volume – as well as Germany’s Kabinett-Riesling. Our masterclass will explore the ageing potential of these delicate yet timeless wines and their fascinating ability to produce almost dry flavours after a few years of bottle ageing, even though the residual sugar content in the wines has not changed analytically.
As some examples, we will have three vintages from each of three Grand Cru sites in the glass: There will be three Rotlack Rieslings from Schloss Johannisberg, three Kabinett wines from the monopoly site Oberemmeler Hütte from Weingut von Hövel, and three Scharzhofberger Kabinett wines from Egon Müller – the most mature 40 years old. A journey through time in a glass!
