Wine Review: Heinz Eifel Kabinett Riesling 2017

May is Riesling Month on TheWineStalker.net!

Heinz Eifel Kabinett Riesling 2017

In 1979 Heinz Eifel founded Römerhof (Roman Yard) in Trittenheim in the heart of the Mosel Valley. When his daughter, Anne Eifel-Spohr, received her oenology degree from Geisenheim University in 2000, Eifel set out to collaborate with her on top-quality wines that reflected tradition while simultaneously respecting the inspiration of the young winemaker. The family was so pleased with the quality and individual character of these wines, they decided to put their own name on the bottle, thus creating Heinz Eifel wines.

This is 100% Riesling of the Kabinett quality designation from Mosel, Germany. That's all I can really tell you about it except that the ABV is 8.5%, and that there's a typo on the back label that spells grapes as grspes, so let's just go right ahead and drink some Riesling!

The color of the wine is a pale yellow and oh-me oh-my! The nose is all about succulent peaches, spiced apples, and limes, with an overlaying minerality, and it smells sooooo nice! On the palate it's medium bodied with a rich mouthfeel and a sweetness that's kept balanced with a bright acidity. I didn't get much floral characteristics on the nose but it's definitely there on the palate, along with pears, apples, limes, and honey. Then it finishes with a thick coating of pears and honey.

For $12 this is a solid Kabinett that won't let you down and gives you exactly what you should expect from a $12 Kabinett with an 8.5% ABV. I really enjoyed it!

QUALITY VS PRICE RATING
Price: $15
Rating: 3.5/5 = Satisfying / Recommended (what does that mean?)
