From the Winemaker:
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.

Ratings & Reviews


91 Points - Wine Spectator:
"A delicious kabinett, elegant midpalate, with white raspberry and ruby grapefruit flavors that extend to envelop notes of dried pineapple and hints of eucalyptus on the finish. Needs a year or two to come together, but all the elements are there. Best from 2021 through 2033. 205 cases imported." - AZ (March 2020)

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2018 Riesling Kabinett is refined, clear and flinty on the nicely reductive and slate-driven nose. Lush and round, with concentrated, ripe fruit and dense texture, this is a promising and persistent Riesling bottled with 8.5% alcohol plus about 45 grams of residual sugar. Tasted in July 2019." - Stephan Reinhardt (October 2019)

Vinous Media:
"Mint-tinged honeydew melon and apple on the nose anticipate the cooling, luscious impression conveyed on a buoyant, polished palate. The sweetness here is entirely supportive. Stimulating apple seed piquancy, zest of lime and a nip of raw ginger add to the appeal of an energetically and refreshingly sustained finish." - David Schildknecht (June 2020)
