Wiltinger Braune Kupp Kabinett, Le Gallais, Egon Müller 2018
The 2018 Wiltinger Braune Kupp Riesling Kabinett (AP #4) is clear and very elegant on the nose where ripe and dense stone fruit aromas and fine flint notes are displayed. Lush, mouthfilling and round on the palate, this is a crystalline, fine and elegant Kupp Kabinett that reveals a stimulatingly salty and a finely grippy finish. The 2018 was bottled with 9% alcohol and a quiet sweet bit of unfermented sugar. Tasted in June 2019.

(Egon Müller Wiltinger braune Kupp Riesling Kabinett) AP: 04 19. The 2018er Wiltinger braune Kupp Riesling Kabinett was harvested at more than 90° Oechsle and was fermented down to fully fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (60 g/l). It offers an aromatic and already quite exotic nose made of apricot, smoke, tangerine, candied grapefruit, orange peel, raspberry and almond cream. The wine coats the creamy, fruity but also quite sweet palate with flavors of orange, tangerine, pineapple and candied fruits, which are balanced out by some earthy spices and citrusy fruits in the long and slightly powerful and phenolic finish. The after-taste is full of hot spices and lime. This is an impressive fruity-styled wine but one which has already the full-on presence of a powerful Spätlese. 2026-2038
