Von Kesselstatt Riesling Kabinett, The Co-op

A delicious mature Mosel Riesling from The Co-op

They say life's too short for a German wine label.

All you need to know about this wine is that it's a mature Mosel Riesling.

What does that mean in practice?

Expect a dry, refreshing, deliciously drinkable citrus-sherbet flavour with some complex aged character and low-ish alcohol.

With German wines being somewhat unfashionable, I picked up several bottles of this mature Riesling for half-price. If, as a rule of thumb, you consider storage costs are £1 per bottle per year, then I paid for the storage and the actual liquid in the bottle was free.

Reichsgraf Von Kesselstatt Riesling Kabinett, 2014 Goldtroepfchen (£12, The Co-op) complex evolved nose of diesel with yellow stone fruits, honeysuckle and citrussy sherbet with lively acidity and a zippy finish.


Drink as an aperitif or sip in the garden.
