"Kabinett" is a term used in German wine classification and labeling. It refers to a specific level of ripeness in the grapes used to produce the wine, and it is primarily associated with Riesling, a white grape variety widely grown in Germany.
The Kabinett wines are typically made from fully ripened grapes with natural sweetness, but they are less sweet than higher-level German wine categories like Spätlese, Auslese, and Trockenbeerenauslese. The grapes used for Kabinett wines are usually harvested earlier in the season, resulting in a lighter and more delicate style.
Kabinett wines often exhibit vibrant acidity, moderate alcohol levels, and a refreshing taste with a balance of sweetness and acidity. They can vary in style from dry to off-dry, depending on the winemaker's preference and the region they come from.
