The Karp-Schreiber estate has been family-owned since 1664, and is today owned and managed by “JJ” Jobst-Julius Karp since the recent retirement of his father Alwin. “JJ” had completed viticultural studies and experience abroad, and soon developed a passion to produce fine wines, having taken a responsible position at the estate since the 2008 harvest. Riesling is cultivated on 15 acres of slate terroir, mostly steeply sloping, and including the “grand cru” Juffer-Sonnenuhr, the best part of the Juffer slope beneath the rock-face with its sundial (“Sonnenuhr”). Manual labor is the only alternative on that hillside, with selective hand-harvesting.

Notes of zesty lemon and lime waft from the nose of this vibrant Kabinett. It’s a spine-tingling, juicy quaffer loaded with cutting white grapefruit and crystalline mineral tones. The finish is long, marked by a lacy veil of sweetness and a hint of musky floral perfume.
