Balanced Mosel Riesling
What started as a conversation about cocktails and "balance" between sweetness and acidity culminated in this Kabinett. A wine that was made with the purpose of finding balance on the tongue. Dancing between bold sweetness and aggressive acidity.

What about the label?
The label is an ode to both the Canadian Flag, as well as, to showcase the evolving labels at Weingut Jakoby. The colour Red was selected to both reflect the Canadian Flag's colour and the Quality wines at Jakoby. The Wine Leaf, to play on the notorious "Maple Leaf" on the Canadian flag. "Oh, Kabinett!" was a recurring saying among Lenz & Philippe when deciding what to drink.
"Cabinet" wines have always been the wines that the winemaker kept secret in their cabinet each vintage. It is also the first level of the German Wine Quality System.
