The 2017er Veldenzer Elisenberg Kabinett was made from fruit harvested at 81° Oechsle. It offers a gorgeously spicy and herbal nose of nettle, green tea, anise, peach and pear. The wine proves nicely smooth and delicate on the palate where some tickly acidity is waiting for its great day. The finish is light-weighted and leaves one with a beautiful feel of tangerine, a hint of apricot and yellow peach in the after-taste.
