Winephabet Street: Episode 11 K is for Kabinett
Welcome to Winephabet Street Season 1 Episode 11. Winephabet Street is a monthly series where Lori Budd of Draceana Wines and myself work our way through the alphabet exploring wine and wine regions on letter at a time. The show is live on the third Monday at 8pm and is free, but you must register to attend. Put in on your calendar, pour yourself a glass of wine and hang out with us.
This month we explored the Kabinett classification in Germany. Did you know it was also known as Cabinet and Kabinettwien. The term was first used with the Cistercian monks at the Eberbach Abby in 1712 and was used for their best wines.
Learn all about the classification and the two wines me and Lori opened during the program. I opened a Nik Weiss Weingut St. Urbans-Hof Kabinett Riesling that had hints of petrol apricot and grapefruit on the finish. As it warms up peach flavor surface. Lori’s was much different than mine.
Sit back with a glass of wine and join us as we explore Kabinett. Watch the webinar or listen to the podcast.
