Succulent flavors of pineapple, lemon and mango dance and dart on the palate of this spry little Kabinett. It's an intensely fruity, juicy sip but anchored by a reverberating backbone of acidity and lingering notes of earth, smoke, spice and animal. Delightful already, but there's so much potential for cellaring, too. (AI) (8/2020)91 points Wine Spectator
A beautiful kabinett, featuring notes of white raspberry and apricot, underscored by electric acidity and minerality, creating harmony and imparting energy and length. Light yet expressive, with a solid structure. Spice notes emerge on the finish. (6/2020)
91pts Mosel Fine Wines:
"The 2018er Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett offers an attractive nose of melon, apricot blossom, herbs, floral elements, and spices. The wine is nicely fruity and delicately juicy on the soft but delicately playful palate. It leaves a touch of grapefruit zest, apricot, and herbal elements in the long and creamy finish. The wine has the structure of a Spätlese but retains nicely playfulness in the finish. The sweetness is already nicely integrated. 2023-2033. (10/2019."
