Müller-Catoir

Mandelring Dry Scheurebe

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.

Spätlese Rieslaner

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. — a year ago

Dürkheimer Nonnengarten Rieslaner Auslese 2015

Rieslaner is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. It has the potential for whimsically textured wines that literally feel as though they dance across your palate. Mouth watering, tingling acidity. I'm honestly in love. So much pleasure in one bottle. — 2 years ago

Dürkheimer Nonnengarten Beerenauslese Rieslaner

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. — 2 years ago
