"The 2019 Elisenberger Riesling Kabinett is very clear, fresh and coolish on the still reductive yet pure and stony nose. Lush and piquant on the palate this is a concentrated, lean and laser-sharp Riesling with juicy fruit and concise acidity. The finish goes straight, which makes this a Riesling for Japanese knife fans." SR 10/2020

"The Richters’ monopole vineyard of the Elisenberg has turned out a beautiful Kabinett in 2019. Most of the fruit for this bottling was picked right at the start of harvest, but Constantin reports that some juice from late in the harvest was also included to get the proper balance of fruit to acidity in the finished wine. The wine ended up with fifty-two grams per liter of residual sugar and 9.5 grams per liter of acidity. It is beautifully expressive on the nose, jumping out of the glass in a beautiful blend of lime, gooseberry, citrus blossoms, a fine base of minerality, a hint of menthol and a topnote of lime zest. On the palate the wine is pure, medium-bodied, complex and vibrant, with a lovely core, fine filigree and bounce, a lovely girdle of acidity and a long, classy and energetic finish." 09/2020
