What importer Bowler Wine has to say about this wine...
The first vintage made of this wine. Euchariusberg is Muller's largest parcel (5.1ha), a rambling site of grey slate and quartz with many old vines still planted.44.2g/l RS, 10.5g acid, 8% alc. From vines planted in 1964 picked at a very low 35hl/ha. Minerality peppered with light tea notes and a nice freshness round off the overall picture. More friendly than the Altenberg, but still impresses with that glorious acid/fruit intensity.
Is there a better grape than Riesling? Is there a better value? Its fruit purity, its perfume, and its mineral nuance are all unparalleled. And for centuries, the top German Rieslings were priced accordingly: at least as expensive as the top red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy. But nowadays you could spend a lifetime exploring Germany’s great Riesling-producing regions while staying well within your budget. You might take an occasional break to try Germany’s other white grapes or perhaps a glass of Spätburgunder (the local name for Pinot Noir). It’s time to get started!
