Taste: The 2021 Römerhof Weinkellerei Riesling Kabinett presents a pale straw hue with a glint of green, hinting at its youthful vibrancy. On the nose, captivating aromas of ripe peaches, citrus zest, and fragrant white flowers intermingle with subtle notes of green apple and pear. The first sip reveals a delicate balance between sweetness and acidity, with flavors of juicy stone fruits and zesty citrus coming to the forefront. A refreshing minerality lingers on the palate, making way for a crisp and clean finish that leaves a lasting impression.
Pairing: The 2021 Römerhof Weinkellerei Riesling Kabinett's harmonious balance of sweetness and acidity allows it to pair beautifully with a wide range of dishes, from light appetizers to rich main courses. This Riesling Kabinett's fresh and fruity profile complements traditional German fare, such as pork schnitzel (see below), sauerkraut, and potato pancakes. Its slight sweetness can also help to balance the spiciness of dishes from its French neighbor, the Alsace region, like choucroute garnie, a hearty dish of sauerkraut and various meats. Vegetarian dishes that feature creamy or slightly sweet elements are a natural match for this Riesling Kabinett. Consider pairing it with a savory mushroom stroganoff, a rich butternut squash risotto, or a tangy goat cheese and beet salad. The wine's bright acidity and fruity profile also make it a lovely companion for Asian-inspired vegetarian dishes, such as stir-fry with a sweet and sour sauce or tofu/vegetable green curry, Japanese curry, and Katsu.

The Winery: Over the past 20 years, Römerhof Weinkellerei has established long-term contracts with select growers who adhere to exacting standards of restricted yields and specific harvest times.

All production takes place in an ISO standard certified bottling plant, and the wines are stored in modern climate-controlled warehouses. This commitment to quality and the art of German winemaking is deeply rooted at Römerhof and extends throughout the Eifel family.
The Varietal: Riesling grapes have been grown in and around central Europe for centuries, becoming a lasting symbol of Germany's ancient and proud wine culture. Requiring cooler climatic conditions than many other white grapes, Riesling varietals are known for their terroir expressiveness, allowing the unique features of the soil and climate to shine through in the final product.
The Country: Germany is known for its diverse range of wines, with many achieving high standards and recognition on the world stage. The country's fertile southern regions and unique climate allow for the production of aromatic and distinctive wines, including the increasingly popular ice-wines.
