Wine Guide

Kitten Swish Riesling


“Our partner for this special release is the venerable Balthasar Ress from the small hamlet of Hattenheim. Their vineyards are prime middle Rheingau with long gentle southwesterly exposures and deep loess and marl soils. Historically we’ve bottled this wine from the Schützenhaus vineyard just west of the village as I’ve always liked the plump profile of the kabinett here. However, the 2018s are rather large and full- fruited and can carry a little more chub around the middle than other recent vintages. This pleasant and precocious girth is a delight for today’s drinking, however, the kabinetts can feel a little more like Spätlese. Since our goal with this wine is to have a certain litheness, crucial for versatility, we opted in 2018 for the more slender declassified kabinett from a combination of different vineyards, including some grapes from Schützenhaus. The resulting wine matched our goal of procuring a nibble that can be cracked and cranked at any given moment of the day; on either side of 8am.” Brad Royale, Kitten Swish
