Winemaker's Notes

Could be described as "the cheerful one" - its fragrance is so pleasing. Aromas of red berries, above all raspberries, but also ripe little grapes, passion fruit and vineyard peach literally jump out of the glass. On the palate: very elegant and lively, with a very fine acidity that ensures a "kick" and that certain something. A mouthful of pleasure that's like being on the wings of a butterfly.

Critical Acclaim

#79 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008

This is unevolved, revealing hints of floral and black currant aromas and flavors, but also yeast and carbonic gas elements. Yet it’s vibrant and juicy, with a lingering finish."
90 Points

"A 2007 Piesporter Goldtropfchen Riesling Kabinett represents the latest in a long-running series of impressive Kesselstatt renditions of this famous site. Scents of pink grapefruit and black currant could be from Scheurebe. A refreshing, subtly oily palate displays well-judged and unobtrusive sweetness that simply places the fruit in high relief, while making possible a wine of low alcohol and delicacy. This might not be the most complex expression of its site, but there will be more nuances in time; and it certainly will reward 15 or more years of cellaring, especially for those who, like me, prefer Mosel Kabinett after any extraneous sweetness has backed off.
