Producer

Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt

A 650 year-old, family-run estate based in Trier in the Mosel, with prime vine-holdings in the Mosel, Saar and Ruwer valleys. The estate farms 46 hectares in total, 12 hectares of which are scattered among the extraordinary but challenging slopes of the Mosel. Skillfully managed from 1983 until her sad passing in 2016 by the quality-focused owner Annegret Reh-Gartner (herself married to a two-star Michelin chef, Gerhard Gartner), this is one of the leading wineries in Germany and accordingly it is a member of the prestigious VDP association.

Saar: Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt Bockstein Riesling Kabinett - Yapp Brothers One Minute Review

Alex Bal reviews the Bockstein Kabinett Riesling from Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt - grown in the Saar region of Germany. Ripe fruit on the nose with a rich balanced palate, and a lower ABV of just 10 percent, ideal with seafood dishes.
