Professional Wine Reviews for Dr. Hermann Riesling Kabinett Erdener Treppchen 2015

Rated 92 by Wine Advocate
Fermented in traditional fuders and fermented with indigenous yeasts, the 2015 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Kabinett –6– is sourced from the top-class plots Kammer and Kieferlay. The wine opens with a very clear, perfectly ripe and vinous bouquet with herbal (really Mediterranean) and flinty aromas. Lean, light and finessed, this is a lush, crystalline and salty Kabinett. It has mouth-filling fruit, as well as a stimulating grip and salinity in the clear, refreshing finish. Still young and more reductive than the Würzgarten Kabinett, it will get even better with a few years of bottle aging. It has 7.5% alcohol and 56.7 grams of residual sugar, but the taste is clearly medium-sweet, if not medium-dry.

Winery Dr. Hermann

Country: Germany

Despite being known primarily for sweet and semi-sweet white wines, Germany actually produces a surprisingly large and varied range of wines, with many reaching an extremely high standard and being very well received on the world stage. The terrain across much of the southern parts of the country is extremely fertile, with mineral rich soils adding a wonderful edge to already excellent grapes, and thus resulting in delicious and highly elegant white and rosé wines. The climate in many parts of Germany also allows for some more unusual wine-making practices, with certain regions specializing in the highly aromatic and distinctive 'ice-wines' which are gaining popularity by those looking for something a little more intense and unusual. With these wines, the producers allow the grapes to freeze through the early frosts, resulting in a higher sugar content and a fantastic set of flavors and aromas in the finished product. Germany has long since favored quality over quantity, and a new enthusiasm for fine wine within the country is producing truly exciting results, using a blending of traditional and contemporary techniques.
