Tasting Notes: Herrenberg is comprised primarily of red slate soil. This exquisite Kabinett exudes aromas of fresh strawberries, blood orange, stone fruits and a smoky nuance from the slate. Only 8% alcohol. Slightly sweet in the classic Kabinett style, the flavors focus on golden delicious apple, yellow peaches, and wet stone. Great acidity. 

93 points James SucklingVery attractive aromas of limes, fresh wild herbs, and slate. All nicely played, very fresh and fragrant. The palate has a very smooth delivery of fine, sweet limes and honey and white peaches to close. Neatly balanced.

Food pairing: Pair this with smoked salmon, smoked trout, schnitzel or a garlic roast chicken. Medium cheeses, too.

The Domain: First documented in 966 A.D. the von Schubert estate is not only one of the oldest but also one of the best. They are sole owners (Monopole) of the 3 vineyards (Abtsberg, Bruderberg, and Herrenberg) that the estate wines are coming from. Since 1982, Dr. Carl von Schubert manages the estate according to the motto: "As much handling as necessary, but as little as possible", putting him and his wines worldwide in the top class.
