Winemaker's Notes

Lovely aroma of pear and peach, rich texture, ripe with a touch of honey, with a well balanced acidity. Round and playful on the palate.

Critical Acclaim

"A tasty Riesling, laced with guava, papaya and pineapple notes. Backed by a firm structure. Picks up stone and pepper accents by the finish. Fine length. Drink now through 2022."
90 Points

"Pineapple, mango, and grapefruit mark the effusive nose of Kesselstatt's 2006 Piesporter Goldtropfchen Riesling Kabinett. Generous, juicy fruit, nut oils, and distinct notes of slate inform a creamy, luscious palate that is almost too viscous and rich for Kabinett, but I would not complain. The finish is quite sweet, but a model of sappy fruit generosity and deft integration of subtle, pure botrytis. One could cellar this long enough to witness the sweetness backing off a bit - certainly it will keep for 10-12 years at least - or one could wallow in its particular sort of sweet generosity now."
