Professional Wine Reviews for Vols Ayler Kupp Riesling Kabinett 2017

Rated 91 by James Suckling
A striking nose of peanut butter from lees contact. Lemons, too. The palate is very crisp and vibrant with a dry finish. Drink or hold.
Rated 89 by Vinous Media
While the eponymous vintage 2016 wine was sourced primarily from Ayl’s Scheidterberg and Rauberg, this year Plunien’s Kabinett from those sites is labeled feinherb, whereas the wine under review here is sourced primarily from the iconic slopes of Ayler Kupp proper. There is only 7% alcohol thanks to harvest at modest must weight coupled with high (40 grams) residual sugar, which high extract and high acidity manage to virtually cancel out. Apple, honeydew melon, spearmint and pennyroyal set the tone aromatically for a luscious and coolingly herbal palate impression. Hints of apple-skin tang and saliva-stimulating salinity add invigorating and mouthwatering appeal to a refreshing and satisfyingly fruit-filled finish.

Winery Vols

Country: Germany

Much has changed over the past few decades in regards to German wine. Long gone are the days of mass produced, sickly sweet white wines which were once the chief exports of this fascinating and ancient wine producing country, and they have been replaced with something far more sophisticated. Whilst Germany continues to produce a relatively large amount of dessert wine, the wineries of the south of the country have reverted their attention to the production of drier, more elegant wines which really make the most of the fine grape varieties which flourish there. Many of the wineries dealing primarily with the excellent Riesling grapes have produced some truly exceptional dry and semi-sweet wines over the past few years, and it seems the world has finally woken up and noticed the extremely high quality of the distinctive produce coming out of Germany today.
