Last time I gave this a 10. Today it’s damn close. Wow. Sick, expansive nose of guava, pineapple, tangerine, spice, flowers, herbs and mango. Perfect ripeness. Just so complex and beautiful. Rainwater. Honey. Endless aromas. Wow that palate. As perfect as a cloud. Stunning density, texture and all in a light package yet doesn’t intensity. Young but so great. A miraculous wine. Amazing acidity, not too high but caressing and invigorating. Concentrated and elegant with flavors of mango, papaya, red currant, and tangerine. Some apricot as well. Finish is slatey, gamey and spicey. Divine juice. — 7 days ago
@delectable martin muellen trarbacher huhnerberg spatlese Feinherb *. The * makes it a separate wine.
A wow wine.
Nose is intensely elegant peach.
Palate is peach nectar. Stunningly delicious. So dense. Almost honeyed. Finish is extra. It’s like that extra oomph from a skin contact wine ... but the oomph is all vineyard. Wow.
Internal aromatics are winemaker fairy tale peach perfume.
This wine is insanely good. Why am I not giving it a 10? Maybe could be more mineral.

Nostel is from Kröver Kirchlay. Martin thinks “Nostel” is the best vinyard in the Kirchlay. I do not disagree. This is a startling wine. Nose smells like a fruity Auslese. But this wine is bone dry. Nose has creaminess, citrus, kumquat, tangelo, green tea and unreal minerals, I mean just sweeping, epic, minerals. So clean. Clarity is 9.9 here. Just amazing. Wow! What insane inner mouth perfume here. Just incredible purity and balance then the finish gets super pithy with all types of ripe citrus accented by swarming minerality. This is super elegant but also big boned at the same time and also super skeletal. Wow what flow this wine has then gets super pithy and grippy on the finish just assaulting your palate with citrus, lime zest and intense, rocky and stoney minerality. Wow. Incredible structure as well. This has 20+ years ahead of it and I cannot wait see where this is in an hour. Brilliant. Epic. Genius!
after 2 hours this is bananas. Insanely complex nose that is super confectionary. Citrus oil, tangerine oil, so so vivid. Unreal. Sick sick. 9.8 nose. Wow what a palate. So refined and delicate and has super rock candy confectionary citrus. A brilliant wine. — 25 days ago
Nose is mineral angle grapefruit pith.
Palate is grapefruit. Mineral. Laserlike acidity.
Brilliantly well made entry level Riesling.
Day 3 this is crazy. Nose is intoxicating grapefruit peel perfume. Almost sexual. Palate has amazing Contained richness. Sick density. Five times as good as this has any right to be as an entry level wine. Bow down before Muellen.

Nose is piercingly Fresh peach. As it opens more floral. White peach flowers. With more air intense florality.
Palate acidity just grabs you. Best peach ever. Not a “pleasant drinker”. This is a fantastic bottle of wine. Maybe some green apple skin ? Yes. As it opens green apple.
Wow. This is a Fucking great bottle of wine. Feinherb. But huhnerberg Feinherb. It’s own animal. A beast.
As this aerates it flirts with magic. In a hard to describe way. The aromatics get just so filigreed. Ok. Aromatics are crazy. A tropical flower perfume that explodes the nose.
The palate so precise. Wow.
This would be higher if the palate were as good as the nose.
Major bottle variation from the last bottle which was merely solid.
