2009 Valckenberg Madonna Riesling, Kabinett Ryan Reichert September 28, 2010 Tasting Notes 2 Comments Just a reminder that “kabinett” does not mean “dry.” Clear, medium lemon yellow in color. Clean aromas of pear, yellow apple, pungent floral, steel wool, wax, and some bandage (Brett). Not sure how I feel about it personally. On the palate it’s off-dry, medium-low acidity, medium body and finish; flavors of overripe peach, applesauce, and candied lemon. Pair with caramelized onion and Gruyère quiche.
