With nearly ten acres (4 ha) Schlossgut Diel is by far the largest owner of this legendary steep site. One explanation of the name is that miners searched for gold here in the 17th century. Another is that the wines made from this site are worth their weight in gold. The key to success is in the soil. A thin layer of clay over bedrock provides power, elegance and depth to the wines.
The 2014 Riesling Kabinett is an assemblage from all of the vineyards, and offers a clear and flinty bouquet of ripe apples. Very piquant and racy on the palate, this is a clear and straight party-wine with just the right amount of sweetness.
