From the importer-

Konstantin Weiser and Alexandra Künstler (pictured above) are as soulful as the vineyards they farm; this is a micro-estate with only around 4 hectares total. They very literally do everything by hand, working the sites both organically and biodynamically. They are in the vines daily and it’s immediately obvious that this is where they’re most comfortable – it’s obvious that they love their vineyards.

This intimacy comes through in the wines. In fact, if we were to point to one producer who carries a similar message of staggering complexity and simple charm, it would be Willi and Christoph Schaefer. Both estates are tiny; both estates seem to easily, naturally make wines that are ethereal, bubbling with purity and subtle nuance. Both estates produce haunting, magical little wines that are worth their weight in gold.

The 2020er Trarbacher Schlossberg Riesling Kabinett was made from fruit harvested at 86° Oechsle on the original Schlossberg hill and was fermented down to barely fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (40 g/l). It offers a subtly ample nose of melon, white peach, and a hint of whipped cream. The wine is gorgeously juicy and subtly creamy on the beautifully light-footed and playful palate and leaves a barely fruity feel in the nice and persistent finish. The aftertaste is a light as a fresh water and yet packed with delicious flavors. The aromatic precision and lightness of this Kabinett are simply remarkable!
