A once historic estate with 100 acres under its belt, found its way to a slow decline, down to 6 acres until being taken over by Thomas and Ute Haag. They have slowly revived the vineyards, quality and reputation to its former glory, including purchasing and leasing 185 Grosse Lagen or "Grand Cru" sites. They are working on farming everything organically with the help of their two children, Lara and Niklas. Winemaking is long and slow and reductive, with spontaneous fermentation, and no fining or filtering, preferring to wait as long as need be for racking to give the purest expression of site.
"The former Kabinett SL has been renamed in 2018 to Kabinettstück, which literally translates to" dodge "or" pièce de résistance, "the 2019 Riesling trocken Kabinettstück is pure, straight and intense on the reductive and attractively slatey nose. Juicy and piquant on the palate, this is a terrific Kabinett (de facto a Kabinett, though not legally) with intensity, grip and complexity. Highly stimulating. Tasted as a sample in April 2020." -Stephan Reinhardt
