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. — 2 months ago
Last week, I sat for three hours with Manni Nossing in his home and tasted through Kerners, Sylvaners, Gruners, and Muller Thurgous dating back to 2014 and through to the 2018s (set to bottle the next day). Manni has a style. Always crisp and green and even when fruit peeks through, it’s usually lean sour grapefruit and firm apricots. He is a mumbling jolly gentle giant with a great sense of humor. This 2014 Kerner was my favorite we tasted and he let me take the bottle for dinner that night. It has mysterious green herbal notes and high acid. Silver green lining, thyme, and lime. — 4 days ago
