Continuing the 2011 extravaganza with this light Spatlese. That's right! I didn't get it wrong... It's a light Spat. Too powerful and sweet to be a kabi in my opinion, but as a Spat - Glorious! The tug and pull between sugar and acid is at a deadlock. Brilliantly balanced. The nose is spicy, herbal, floral, and very typical of Egon. The palate is crystalline. Like sucking on a piece of slate that was used to cut lime, then rubbed with mango and preserved lemons. To finish, take a bite of the juiciest peach, then lick some rock salt. The finale is long, smooth, and begs for you to take another swig. Gone in no time at all!

Wonderful Muller nose combining freshness and complexity . The fruit salad and citrus aromas grab your head and forces your nose into the glass.
On the palate sweetness and acid do not fight for attention but instead dance the tango on your tongue.

Across the river from the Lauer, bit more residual but there's a wonderful commonality between the wines. All hail King Egon.

Of course a very young wine. Maybe just a little bit to sweet for my taste.. Not impressed..

Had not tasted this wine in 24 months, and it's arguably even better than I remembered. AP# 2 and 10% alcohol.
