"Some people say that Riesling Kabinett must be sleek and very acidic, but this wine shows why this is narrow-minded. Fabulous nose of white flowers, ripe pear and white peach, then on the seriously concentrated palate this is so succulent and so precise you don’t want to think about anything else! Almost perfect balance at the long super-silky finish. From 60-year-old vines. Drink or hold."— 97 Points, JamesSuckling.comWherever a great wine grows, the church is always correspondingly wealthy, as is the case in Kesten. The clerical "masters" of the surrounding monasteries, monasteries and abbeys were the largest vineyard owners and the 70 hectare area was given its name accordingly.St. Paulin was one of the most famous and richest monasteries, and becoming a canon there was an honour and associated with income. St. Paulin is named after the church dedicated to St. Paulinus or Paulin, which still exists today. Herrenberg refers to the canons of the Paulin monastery and is a common field name. To this day, the "Häär" in Mosel Franconian is the name for a cleric. The canonship ended with the abolition of the monasteries and convents by the French in 1803, who confiscated such properties as state property and auctioned them off to private individuals. This is how most of today's vineyards came into being. The field names, however, remained the old ones.
