Tasty well aged Pfalz Durkheimer Reieslaner Auslese — 4 years ago
2016 vintage. Very tropical. Brûleed pineapple, baked yellow apple, quince paste, banana, fried plantain, honeysuckle, prendre blossom, white lokum, yellow papaya. Good sweetness-acid balance, though a touch less acid than a lot of Riesling equivalents. — 5 years ago
2017 vintage, amazing wine. — 4 years ago
2017 vintage. Concentrated fruit flavors of apricot nectar, perfectly ripe peaches, mango, pineapple, lychee, a little green banana skin, jasmine, a saffron note. Definite sweetness, but the acid comes through and delivers a very long finish. — 4 years ago
This was trockenbeerenauslese really unctuous and long. Roasted apricot. Nectar. — 4 years ago
GP in the blind, "Exotic aromatics, racy, juicy, salty. Could it be scheu?" Great job, GP!
I'm gonna give it a win for me on producer, even though I totally forgot the name "Muller-Catoir". Instead, I described the estate - in the Pfalz, famed for its wildcard varieties, especially rieslaner and scheu, and KP started making rieslaner and scheu because Julia fell in love with the varieties while interning there.
I guess it wasn't a hard guess once the variety was revealed - mainly by method of elimination since hardly any scheu enters Australia, short of the occasional Keller, and none of KP's 17' scheu got in. I think like KP, Muller-Catoir really nailed the 17' scheu trocken. Juicy, dense, spicy, and super energetic. So delicious right now, but I reckon it'll stand the test of time. — 4 years ago
