⭐️86/100⭐️ Kloster Eberbach “Heppenheimer Centgericht” Riesling Kabinett Trocken, 1979 📍Eltville, Rheingau, Germany🇩🇪 🍇 100% Riesling ⚡️10,1% Tasted: October 2020 This label refers to the old state winery (Staatsweingut) of Kloster Eberbach from the federal state of Hesse (which includes the region of Rheingau and some other well known wine regions). On the label you find the A.P. Number (Amtliche Prüfungsnummer) which gives information about the bottler/winery etc. A. P. nr.: 50010 028 80 - 50010: Identification nr. (indicates producer and belonging) - 028: Testing lot number - 80: Year of testing (all QmP-wines must undergo a control-test to make sure, the quality is high enough for the QmP-classification). “Kabinett” is one of six designated German wine classifications and indicates the lightest style of German wines. The grapes are picked at normal harvest, typically in September when they have ripened, and shows an off-dry style, unless “Trocken” (dry) is mentioned on the label as well, which indicates a longer fermentation leading to less residual sugar content (a drier wine) and a bit higher alcohol. Combined with Rieslings high acidity, this marriage between a touch of sweetness and acidity is simply unique and elegant, and develops beautifully over long periods of time. Do I have to mention the look from the color? Not really - perfect after more than 41 years. The aromas started out with way too many scents of wet newspaper and damp basement. But checking on it after an hour in the decanter, it was all replaced by lovely aromas of canned peach, preserved lemon, kumquat, beeswax, slightly smoked (maybe some mild petrol) and just a hint of oxidation. Very elegant, but less petrol than expected. The palate is round and soft with more than enough acidity preserved - peach, apricot, mango, acacia honey, dried ginger and some sweet spices. Old Riesling...
