Name: Muller-Catoir MC Riesling
From the Importer:
"Note the absence of the word “Trocken.” This wine is in fact on the dry side of feinherb but I’d just as soon leave the whole
question of sugar off the label, you know? It’s just freaking perfect Riesling, as you indicated when you ordered more than three
times the amount we had available. This is a custom-bottling, the Germans being pathologically averse to sweetness unless it is
grotesque and overdone, and we upped the quantity this year. One taste and you’ll see why.
The wine is perfect. Everything a crazy-ass delicious and perfectly dry-enough Riesling could ever be. Top of its class!"
"2014 Riesling M-C starts very clear, spicy and fresh on the nose, showing good ripeness and intensity. Round and full on the palate, with a nice grip and stimulating salinity, this is a mouth-filling and finely racy Estate Riesling already with a lot of character. Good length, serious wine. Grapes are sourced from younger vines on gravelly soils in and around of the village of Haardt. The vineyards were pre-selected twice."
