Sybille Kuntz Riesling Kabinett is a brilliant example of Mosel Kabinett. The fruit is tangy and fresh with apple and stone fruit character but this wine is all about minerality which shines through with every mouthful.
After the first week of harvest the picking crew is growing together and has developed a sure feeling for the quality and the nature of the grapes. Now we begin with the sorting, the pre picking. All vineyard parcels in the Lieser Schlossberg, Rosenlay and Niederberg-Helden are combed through for grapes that have already achieved their ripening potential for the second quality category, i.e. Kabinett. All other grapes remain on the vine and ripen further until the final picking. For Kabinett we also vinify grapes from the Pauls Valley in Lieser, a former side valley of the Moselle with steep slate slopes and old vines. The heat is collected here like in a parabolic mirror. The soil is 100% blue devonian slate and adds particular mineral notes into the wines.
Sybille took over her family estate in the early 1980’s. She had opened a wine shop a few years earlier and realised that her parent’s wine was poor compared to others in the region. She thought she could do better and was right! Sybille now farms the 45 acre estate with her husband Markus along strict biodynamic principals. The wines have a complexity, freshness and modern appearance that puts them amongst the best in the region.
