2021 Klosterhof Brauneberger Klostergarten Kabinett AR









Feral Factor: 1

A new discovery for us this year, Klostergarden is run by brothers Dominique and Benjamin. We tasted their full 2022 range and persuaded them to let us have the last 2021s until the new wines arrive in a few months.


Mosel Fine Wines say:

The 2021er Brauneberger Klostergarten Riesling Kabinett Alte Reben (with a black label, whereas all other bottles have a white label) was made

from grapes harvested at 80° Oechsle in the original, south-south-west-facing part of the vineyard from 50-year-old vines and was fermented down

in stainless steel tanks to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (44 g/l). It is at first still very much dominated by residual scents from its spontaneous

fermentation (wild herbs, almond cream, and bakery products) before it reveals refined and complex scents of vineyard peach, candied tangerine,

mint, thyme, gooseberry, cassis, violet, and lime. The wine has a gorgeous balance on the palate, where some delicate creamy fruits and elements

are wrapped into animating and refreshing acidity. The finish is superbly focused and very long. This is a remarkable Kabinett with even upside

potential as it gains in complexity with age. 2028-2041 - 93+ Points
