Riesling Kabinett is a light-bodied and off-dry style of Riesling wine from Germany. The name "Kabinett" refers to the fact that the grapes used to make this wine are harvested in the main portion of the vineyard, and not from the lower quality or less mature grapes at the edges or bottom of the vineyard.
The grapes used to make Riesling Kabinett wines are harvested relatively early in the season, resulting in a lower level of ripeness and sugar content than later-harvested Rieslings. This produces a wine with lower alcohol content and a refreshing acidity, balanced by a touch of sweetness.
Riesling Kabinett wines are known for their delicate and nuanced flavors, which can include floral notes, citrus, and green apple. They often have a mineral undertone, which reflects the terroir of the vineyard where they are grown.
Riesling Kabinett wines are versatile and pair well with a range of foods, including light seafood dishes, salads, and spicy Asian cuisine. They are also enjoyable on their own as an aperitif or with light desserts. Riesling Kabinett wines are a great choice for those who enjoy a refreshing and easy-drinking wine with a touch of sweetness.
