2021 Felix Weber Wiltinger Klosterberg Hundsbuckel Kabinett feinherb

Tasting note

2021 Weingut Felix Weber Wiltinger Klosterberg Hundsbuckel Riesling Kabinett feinherb

The Felix Weber winery, founded in 2015, is located in Wiltingen on the Saar. Felix Weber founded the winery during his apprenticeship (during which, if I am informed correctly, he gained practical experience with Egon Müller, among others) and was able to take over vineyards from his family. Today, the winery cultivates two hectares.

This weekend, I have his 2021 Wiltinger Klosterberg Hundsbuckel Riesling Kabinett feinherb (off-dry in English) in my glass. The “Hundsbuckel” is a plot planted in 1972 in the well-known Wiltinger Klosterberg. The year of planting can also be found on the label.

The colour is a pale, whitish yellow, not unlike the Pergentsknopp from Van Volxem, which I recently drank. The bouquet is typical Saar – very mineral, stony, with notes of honeydew melon and peach. In the mouth, crisp and fresh, the acidity well integrated, very animating in the interplay with the fruit sweetness. Makes you want to take the next sip! Lemon and ripe pineapple on the palate, which also dominate the finish.

For me, this winery is a new discovery that I am very happy about. I have already ordered a tasting package to try some of their other wines. I can only recommend the 2021 Hundsbuckel Kabinett!

Drink from 2022 through 2028.
