Muller Catoir Riesling 2016
There are very few German Estates that can produce an entry level Riesling of this quality. It is cropped at an incredibly low 35hl/ha in order to mitigate its younger-vine age and is made entirely from hand-harvested, Estate fruit grown in the loamy gravels and stony sands around Neustadt an der Weinstraße (just outside Haardt). A terrifically succulent and vibrant Riesling, it has Catoir's trademark purity and finesse. There is plenty of sweet citrus, lemon-barley, talc and lime zest deliciousness all woven through with intense chalky, minerality. Deep, tightly wound and precise, it's model wine for the genre.
In a mixed or straight case: $37.04
