2018 Zilliken Saarburger Rausch Kabinett Riesling Saar

SKU #1448753 92 points John Gilman

 The 2018 Rausch Kabinett was scheduled for bottling on April 1st and was showing beautifully at the time of my visit. The bouquet is already showing some of the classical filigree of this Prädikat level at its best, offering up scents of grapefruit, pear, salty slate, white flowers, a hint of Rausch mossiness and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is medium-bodied, crisp and complex, with fine mineral drive, excellent focus and grip and the delicate stop on the long finish of a classic example of Kabinett. Fine juice in the making. (Drink between 2019-2050) 92+  (4/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2018 Rausch Kabinett is ripe and floral on the nose, while the palate is lush, moderately sweet and filigreed, revealing a nice, stimulating mineral grip. Tasted in June 2019.(SR)  (8/2019)

Jancis Robinson

 Delicate and fragrant – with absolutely unmistakable Saar style. Just the sort of thing to please the old guard – rightly so. Dances along. Gentle balance and massive refreshment value. 17/20 points. (JR)  (4/2019)

K&L Notes

90 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 13 19. The 2018er Saarburger Rausch Riesling Kabinett was made from fruit harvested at 89° Oechsle and was fermented down to sweet levels of residual sugar. It offers an attractive and ripe nose of pineapple, yellow peach, lavender, almond and candied grapefruit. More yellow and ripe fruits convey the wine the smooth and juicy structure of a Spätlese on the ripe palate. The finish is light, smooth and long. 2026-2038." (08/2019)
