With a perfect balance of light sweetness with fresh acidity and a round texture, this wine is a charmer. Intense aromas and flavors of with fruit - apricots, white peaches, oranges, with a hint of honey. This wine is off-dry - slightly sweet on the opening but finishing clean and dry - it is a most versatile drink. Pair it with spicy food - Asian and Indian cuisine - roasted chicken, pork dishes. Note: Kabinett on the label indicates a wine with a low level of residual sugar - wines designated as such can be dry or off-dry, most often from premium or 'great growth' sites.
The Schlossgut Diel property in the Nahe wine region of Germany includes vineyards, a castle and winery, and are significant historically. The Diel family bought the winery in 1802 from Baron Dalberg, who successfully prevented its confiscation by Napoleon’s troops in 1789. The winery is currently owned by noted gourmand and wine aficionado, Armin Diel, who is recognized for promoting German wine. His daughter, Caroline, oversees winemaking. Diel’s wines offer comparisons of both terroir and intensity, achieved at various levels of ripeness. Diel is among the very few who still produces each Grosses Gewächs (equivalent to Grand Cru, meaning Great Growth) site at each Pradikät (ripeness level expressed in ripeness level terms, e.g. residual sugar).
Diel's steep vineyards are on soils of clay, slate, quartz and gravels. Because of the steepness of the slopes, organic viticulture is practiced as much as possible. With recognized great sites, meticulous vineyard management and winemaking, Diel's wines continue to receive wide acclaim.
