Every bottle drunk of Müller-Catoir is a love letter. There is a visceral experience with these wines, like a pumice stone, a rough surface to a smooth finish. These aren't razor edged wines, forcing a point of view, they are edgy with secrets to share with those who are willing to listen. This historic estate has had hundreds of years and plenty of talented winemakers have garnered it critical acclaim. But never have they rested on their laurels, even now, with some of the most careful farming and strictest selection of grapes from anywhere. Whether dry or sweet, Riesling or Pinot Noir, young or old the stark minerality of these wines will bring you back for more.
What importer Skurnik Wines has to say about this wine...
Site: Harrdt, near the Madelgarten vineyard.Soil: GravelElevage: 100% stainless steel, light crush before the press but no maceration.1 ½ HA in total planted to Scheurebe. This is a line drive right up the middle as it speaks perfectly to what this grape can be. Beautiful exotic citrus aromas, white grapefruit, blood orange twist, and totally clean fruit. There are no feral aromas here. Fresh, clean, bright yellow flowers that have just recently blossomed in the spring.
