Very pale yellow. Practically clear. Mineral peach pit, petrol, and mineral nose. Light and refreshing palate. Lots of acids but it works well. Sneaky long finish. Clearly I need to own more Kabinett. Great with a spicy curry. Absolutely fantastic quality at this price. Retail $20, Grade: A. Jill says A. Barry says A.
