Wonderfully fresh and crisp, this is the opposite of the full-bodied and round Pfalz wine cliche. Brimming with wild-berry aromas, long and very clean on the citrusy finish. By the way, there is some sweetness in there, but just like with Mosel Kabinett wines, this is actually slightly sweet even if tastes dry. Drink now or in 2018 and 2019. Screw cap closure. JS

Zippy, with aromas of honeysuckle and flavors of bergamot, lime and apricot that slide across the palate, underscored by vibrant acidity. Ends with a stream of delicious orchard fruit and mineral notes. Drink now through 2025. 208 cases made, 30 cases imported. AZ
The Paradiesgarten vineyard is situated on the western slope of Deidesheim next to a forested hill. The name was given to this vineyard because it truly feels like Paradise here. The grapes are hand harvested and spontaneous fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. The wine rests on the lees for 7 months until it is bottled in the spring after harvest and released a few months later. The vineyards are organically farmed without the use of chemical pesticides.
The Paradiesgarten Riesling Kabinett is a light and easy-drinking wine with a bright acidity that is perfectly balanced with its natural sweetness. The wine is fruit-driven with notes of apple, pear, and passion fruit. Delicious with Asian and spicy cuisine.
