The Wines of Germany 101
Taking a look at the where, what, whys and whens of Germany
Kabinett can be less sweet than Spatlese, or at least they have traditionally been so. A lighter, more elegant and delicate style of wine, it has long been my favorite of Germany’s Rieslings. As the wines get sweeter they tend to trade some transparency and minerality for fruit whereas Kabinetts with their gentle sweetness are all about their vineyard sources.
