“The 2015 Goldtröpfchen Kabinett is a stunning wine, with even a bit more acidity than the “J. J.” bottling providing even more inner tension for the wine and more lift and length on the finish. This is breathtakingly beautiful Kabinett, jumping from the glass in a beautifully complex nose of sweet grapefruit, a bit of black currant, lovely slate undertow, citrus peel, dried flowers and a nice touch of the vintage’s botanicals in the upper register. On the palate the wine is medium-bodied and gossamer-strung, with classic well water Kabinett purity. The finish is long, racy and beautifully filigreed, with the cut, weightlessness and backend bounce of the very finest Kabinetten of the vintage. The numbers here are eleven grams per liter of acidity, 7.5 percent alcohol and fifty-nine grams per liter of residual sugar to balance those snappy acids. Great wine.”

"Harvested at a moderate 84° Oechsle, the 2015er Goldtröpfchen Kabinett still shows some residual notes from the spontaneous fermentation at first and only gradually reveals its bouquet of apricot tree flower, gooseberry, fresh herbs and spices. The wine is superbly fresh and complex on the palate, where it woes one with a lightly creamy texture and good aromatic ripeness and density. This richer side is nicely enhanced by a feeling of focus in the zesty and pure finish. This is a superb Kabinett in the making!"
