Ratzenberger Bacharacher Riesling Kabinett Feinherb 2021 75 CL

Mittelrhein – Germany

Weingut Ratzenberger belongs in Steeg, a few kilometers up a side valley to the Rhine near the town of Bacharach. Here, wines are produced almost exclusively from the Riesling grape on fatally steep, south-facing plots covered with Devonian shale. Stylistically, the wines are very similar to the wines from the Mosel, and this part of the Mittelrhein is also part of the same Hunsrück massif, which rocks the eastern parts of the Mosel valley’s vineyards.

Ratzenberger is a specialist in the wines around cabinet/spätlese level, where the wines have just the right mix of lightness and intensity that do not numb the senses, but rather awaken them.

Bacharacher Kabinett Feinherb is a semi-dry/fruity wine with a wonderful counterplay of lean but ripe acidity and salty minerals.

Aroma and taste in favorable vintages like this one offer apricot, lime oil, ripe grape, white flowers and the slightly indefinable aromatic slate imprint, which cannot be measured in chemical analyses, but which is nevertheless still there! The taste floats effortlessly and in perfect balance somewhere between semi-dry and semi-sweet, or just poorly translated, FEINHERB!

Ratzenberger Bacharacher Riesling Kabinett Feinherb is, in addition to a superb ‘slurp wine’, an absolutely excellent food wine that goes well with a multitude of food types, from raw marinated fish to Wienerschnitzel to sushi or strong, Far Eastern cuisines. This is the prototype of wine that, when open, disappears like dew in the sun, but if you have bought enough and can keep your fingers off some of the bottles, it can be enjoyed all the way from young to old; a journey that typically lasts between one and two decades for this wine!

Served at approx. 7-10°.
