2020 Havemeyer 'Kabinett' Piesporter Michelsberg, Germany Riesling
Crisp and bright, a refreshing German Riesling with a long and lingering sweet finish.
About This Wine:
The country has a noble history of wine production that dates back to 70 AD. Boasting steep black slate hillsides and rolling hills of lime and clay, Germany is blessed with some of the most interesting and distinctive terroir in the world — terroir that’s ideal for the white Riesling, Müller-Thurgau and Elbling grapes.
Piesporter is a wine made in and around the village of Piesport on the north bank of Germany’s Mosel wine region, the home of Havemeyer. With a Piesporter Michelsberg wine, the grapes are harvested from a collection of individual plots, producing wines that typically are more complex than single-vineyard bottlings.
“Kabinett” is the lightest style of Riesling, one that allows the flavors of the grapes to meld seamlessly with the sweetness of the winemaking style. The 2020 Havemeyer Piesporter Michelsberg Riesling Kabinett is crisp, bright, sweet and — dare we say? — seductive.
