John Gilman, View from the Cellar #62

“As readers may recall from last year’s article, Julian Haart ascribes to Dr. Manfred Prüm’s mantra that great, classic Kabinetten must be made from very old vines and higher yields, so as to capture that inherent, ethereal delicacy of true Mosel Kabinett. However, this was not possible in the very, very old vines that Julian has in the Schuberstlay, as these ancient, one hundred and ten year-old vines only produced twelve hectoliters per hectare in 2015!
Nevertheless, though this wine has not been produced by the Kabinett maxims of Dr. Prüm, it is an utterly brilliant wine. The numbers are 11.5 grams per liter of acidity, seven percent alcohol and forty-one grams per liter of residual sugar. They add up to an absolutely stunning wine on both the nose and palate, with the beautiful bouquet offering up stunning delicacy in its mélange of currant, a touch of white cherry, lime blossoms, a bit of mint, a very refined base of slate and a topnote of iris blossoms. On the palate the wine is medium-bodied, very complex and filigreed, with lovely delicacy and bounce, fine focus and outstanding lift from its zesty acids on the very long and dancing finish. Brilliant juice.”

"The 2015er Piesporter Schubertslay Kabinett is still quite reduced at this stage, something not unusual for wines harvested at a remarkably low 79° Oechsle. It is only after quite some airing that flinty scents of white flowers, mint and slate gradually emerge from the glass. The wine proves superbly pure and light on the palate yet full of mineral presence in its very long finish. This is a superbly fresh and classic Kabinett in the making."
