Domdechant Werner Hochheim Riesling Kabinett 2021
90 pts. Falstaff
Apricot, papaya and honeydew melon in the carried nose, yellow flowers and some violets. Classic and beautiful Rheingau style on the palate with ripe, sweet fruit and lively acidity, which complement each other perfectly as a complementary pair. Lush and also agile, this is how it goes into the finely spiced finale.
The historical estate is owned by Dr. Franz Werner Michel, the seventh generation of the founding family. The eighth (and possibly ninth) generation is now on the scene, as Dr. Michel's daughter, Catharina Mauritz, mother of three sons, has also become involved in the estate's management. Producing Riesling Wines since 1780, Franz Michel was awarded "White Winemaker Of The Year 2017" at the Internation Wine Challenge in London.
