Vinification of the Rheingau Riesling Kabinett by Robert Weil
This wine clearly focuses on one grape variety, and that is Riesling. Only the best grapes were used for this wonderfully elegant varietal wine from Robert Weil. In the Rheingau, the vines that produce the grapes for this wine grow on soils of loess. Rheingau Riesling Kabinett is an Old World wine in the best sense of the word, as this German wine exudes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underscores the success of Old World wines. The fact that Riesling grapes thrive under the influence of a rather cool climate also has a considerable influence on the ripening of the vintage. This manifests itself, among other things, in particularly long and even grapes and rather moderate alcohol content in the wine. When perfectly ripe, the grapes for Rheingau Riesling Kabinett are harvested exclusively by hand without the help of coarse and less selective machines. After the harvest, the grapes are quickly taken to the press house. Here they are sorted and carefully broken up. Fermentation then takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. At the end of fermentation, the Rheingau Riesling Kabinett can continue to harmonize on the fine lees for several months.
Food recommendation for the Rheingau Riesling Kabinett by Robert Weil
