Absolutely nuts-o wine in 2022 - these are maybe the best Kabinetts Lauer has ever made? Which makes zero sense after 2021, I understand this, but still... it's the lightness. And to prove just how absolutely nuts Lauer is, he made two Fuders of this wine and did not like the combined wine, so he is bottling them with separate AP numbers. Note: I have no idea what we're getting and we are not going to make a stink about this - and you shouldn't either. But what is beautiful about this is Lauer's unwillingness to follow any ideology. Sometimes he finds blending casks better - sometimes not. And so here, two different Kabinetts.

From Mosel Fine Wines, Issue No. 66: "The 2022er Kupp Kabinett No. 8, as it is referred to in the central part of the label, was made from fruit harvested in the original Kupp hill and was fermented down to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (49 g/l). Very smoky and herbal at first, but also slightly reductive, it reveals elegant and refined notes of white flowers, citrusy fruits, yuzu, anise, and white pepper. The wine is full of tension and spices in the comparatively off-dry and playful palate. The finish is herbal and nervy. This is a great drinking Kabinett with superb complexity."
