From one of Germany’s greatest producers, this Kabinett is a staff favourite. Domprobst is an ancient vineyard located in Graach where soils on the steep, sun-facing hillsides are densely mineral but also relatively fertile and irrigated. This creates perfect conditions for Riesling that is complex and structured but also lush, sappy and mouth-filling. One to decant soon or age for quite some time.

"The 2018 Kabinett from the Domprobst is an absolute classic in the making. As is customary with wines from this great terroir, this is more reserved in profile than the Himmelreich Kabinett, but it is going to have a long and beautiful life ahead of it. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a youthful blend of pear, tangerine, a salty base of slate, citrus peel, gentle smokiness and a whisper of wild yeasts in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, medium-full, crisp and complex, with lovely transparency and grip, fine acids and a long, vibrant and filigreed finish. First class Kabinett. Drink 2025 – 2065."

"This smells deeper and a little more savoury than his Graacher Himmelreich, a greater sense of underground minerality. So complex even in youth. Both intense and full of energy, lively, harmonious and yet with a wild streak of adventure, more piercing at the very end. Very persistent and VGV. Drink 2020 – 2028."
