2014 J.B. Becker Wallufer Walkenberg Riesling Kabinett trocken Alte Reben

Tasting note

2014 J.B. Becker Wallufer Walkenberg Kabinett trocken Alte Reben

Strong lemon yellow, tending towards golden yellow. Intense, very interesting nose. Predominantly mature aromas. Honey, flowers, preserved lemon, mirabelle plum, ginger. This is impressively different. Slender and fresh mouthfeel. Bone dry. High acidity, but with strength and pull on the palate: lemon, peach, spicy ginger, yeast. Plenty of extraction. This is challenging, not a Riesling for beginners, but a lot of fun! The Kabinett lingers long and salty on the tongue. Oh yes, did I say Kabinett? It feels more like a Spätlese ("late harvest"). Perhaps that's because Hajo Becker didn't harvest a Spätlese this year. This means that in 2014, the higher qualities probably also flowed into the Kabinett.

Drink from 2024 through 2039.
