    We do not see too many Kabinetten bottlings from the Braune Kupp vineyard these days, as this is a lower vineyard down by the river, and therefore really well positioned for botrytis, but in 2018 Egon Müller was able to produce a bit of Kabinetten as well. This is a lovely wine in the making, offering up a very stylish nose of pear, a touch of white cherry, fresh mint, slate, white flowers and a lovely base of slate. On the palate the wine is pure, fullish, long and complex, with a fine core of fruit, impressive focus and grip and a long, nascently complex and zesty finish. This sort of straddles the line between Kabinett and light Spätlese right now, but I am sure that with some bottle age and time for the puppy fat to fade a bit, it will be a very, very satisfying Kabinett. (Drink between 2024-2065)

    The 2018 Wiltinger Braune Kupp Riesling Kabinett (AP #4) is clear and very elegant on the nose where ripe and dense stone fruit aromas and fine flint notes are displayed. Lush, mouthfilling and round on the palate, this is a crystalline, fine and elegant Kupp Kabinett that reveals a stimulatingly salty and a finely grippy finish. The 2018 was bottled with 9% alcohol and a quiet sweet bit of unfermented sugar. Tasted in June 2019.(SR)
