Very creamy and minerally, with good acidity behind the ruby grapefruit, mineral and red peach flavors. Lots of licorice and herbal notes enliven the delicate finish. Drink now through 2025.

For years, Annegret and Gerhard Gartner have created a nearly perfect harmony between their personal and professional lives – something only a few married couples succeed in doing. Not only are they inseparable from one another, but also from their work. It comes as no surprise – nearly everything revolves around food and wine. The wines are uncompromisingly and consistently subject to the highest quality standards. This commitment has earned the estate recognition and respect, and has been confirmed by many prizes and awards by leadinging publications, such as the German gourmet magazine Feinschmecker, the critical wine guide Gault Millau, and the American wine magazine Wine Spectator (including vintner of the year) – to name but a few. Weingut Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt is more than 650 years old and thus, one of the most historical estates in the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer region. In 1978, the Günther Reh family acquired the estate from the Reichsgrafen (imperial counts) of Kesselstatt. Today, Annegret Reh-Gartner and her husband Gerhard Gartner carry on this Riesling tradition. In 1999, headquarters moved from Palais Keselstatt in Trier to Schloss Marienlay in the Ruwer Valley. Here, optimal conditions were created for producing Riesling wines that are on a par with the finest wines of the world. No other wine estate in Germany has such an unusually broad spectrum of top vineyards in all three river valleys of the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer region. They are sites that number among the best white wine vineyards of the world. The estate owns 36 hectares (89 acres) of vines, all of which are on steep slopes. All work in the vineyards is exclusively done by hand. The estate’s guiding principle: the quality of the terroir should be reflected in a wine. Read less

Honey, citrus, green apple and lemon drop. Sweet but with a crisp acidity. I think it could use a bit more time in the bottle.

I tried it with a great mushroom risotto my aunt cooked for my birthday.

This bottle proves that a quality Piesporter can compete quite well with the more famous vineyard sites. The nose is marked by lush peach and a tight bundle of other flavors trying to emerge. On the palate, lime and mineral provide an interesting and refreshing contrast to the ripe flavors picked up on the nose. Drink this wine now for the freshness and complexity that it's already showing, or drink it in a few years when the nose is sure to become more elegant and complex.

Ripe and extracted, with a brilliant expression of fruit, acid and sugar. Very impressive for its clarity and balance.

Aromas of passion fruit and peach, racy acidity, great length and extracted body. A Kabinett with an aging potential of 15 years.

Seems almost confectionary in its bold, fruit-driven aromas of spring flowers, strawberries and lime, but picks up greater minerality and some petrol notes on the slightly creamy-texture palate. Long and fruit-driven on the finish.

A floral style, with rose, violet and apricot aromas and flavors. Rich and round, on a light-bodied frame, it's very open and accessible, with a long finish. Drink now through 2010.
