Axel Pauly is one of the dynamic young stars of German wine. He took over the Pauly estate from his father after doing vintages in California, New Zealand and other parts of Germany. Fittingly, the label features the Mosel hills which, when turned on their side, reveals the ‘Tres Naris’ (or ‘three noses’) of Axel, his father and his grandfather.
The Kabinett Riesling was harvested from the family’s small parcel of vines in the single vineyard of Kardinalsberg, in the famous village of Bernkastel. Vines are on average 40 years old. The wine is a Kabinett, meaning that it was harvested slightly later in the season, resulting in riper fruit and a fuller palate than the earlier-picked styles.
The Kabinett Riesling is bright yellow with green reflexes. On the nose, there are notes of sweet honey and melon, ripe apples and peaches, with touches of fresh hay. The palate is full and lively, with an elegant mineral slate taste, a touch of sweetness and long, lingering flavours of citrus and spice.Additional informations (PDF)
