Natalie's Score: 92/100

A superb German Riesling with sweetness balanced with acidity so it's not cloying. Perfect for glazed ham, chutneys and mild to medium curries and spices. Aromas of peach and apricot.

Riesling Kabinett food pairings: mild curries, grilled seafood, sushi, Korean pork ribs.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This delightful Mosel Reisling is so well named - "Little Drops of Gold"! Gives supple notes of honeyed peach, subtle minerality and lemon in a silky-satin mouthfeel. Unforgettable. Enjoy with curries or alternately, with dessert. A treat for those who love a sweet Riesling.
Tasted Jan. 2019
Mosel wines have this wonderful richness about them and this Riesling Kabinett, Mosel Prädikatswein from Bischöfliche Weingüter does not disappoint. Trier Piesporter Goldtropfchen 2016 is a medium-bodied, softly sweet with rich and layered silky tropical fruit, vibrant acidity and a very long finish. Just beautiful on its own and could cellar for another 10 years, just to see where this complex and lush Riesling goes, but it would be very difficult to keep your hands off of it till then. If pouring now, chill and enjoy with a rich roast of pork. - Community Wine Reviews

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
