Wonderfully fresh, with green apple zing and a careful touch of honey, this is a moreish example of great quality modern Riesling. Lovingly crafted by two brothers (gifted, seventh-generation winemakers) Karl May Kabinett is pure drinking pleasure!
Germany remains the best producer of Riesling and in a great variety of styles. Here you have a Riesling of outstanding quality from the historic Rheinhessen. It’s made by brothers Peter and Fritz May, seventh generation winemakers at the Karl May estate. Both have studied oenology at university and travelled widely: Peter having worked in Marlborough in New Zealand and Fritz at Riesling specialist Grosset in Australia and Preisinger in Austria. They've a modern approach to winemaking, with eco-friendly methods in the vineyard and a non-interventional approach in the cellar. And it's reflected in the pure, vibrant fruit and finesse of their wines. Like this 2018 Kabinett, full of green apple and citrus, with an appealing hint of honey.
"The Karl May brothers have done it again! Bright limey Riesling, beautifully balanced and fresh"
