Müller-Catoir Weissburgunder Trocken 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The MC Riesling is an elegant introduction to the Riesling league, with fresh unmistakeable aromas of apple and citrus fruits and lively highlights of a delicate mineral note.

Surprisingly flavoursome; full-bodied and very racy, rich in extract and with a fruity acidity structure. All wines are made from grapes from the winery's own vineyards. The harvest is limited through restrictive vine pruning in the winter, supplemented by partial removal of grapes in the summer. Soil is given meticulous care (mostly permanent green cover) and there is selective hand-picking of very small grape quantities without use of a combine-harvester. The result of these methods are high extract figures, ripe acidity and a definitive character for each variety, making even small vintages full-bodied and top-class. Since grapes are always harvested extremely late on this estate, the musts are cold when they arrive in the cellar and so ferment slowly without any interference. After racking to remove yeast, wines are not touched again until they are filled into bottles. During bottled storage, these non-moved wines usually precipitate tartrate crystals and may sparkle slightly. So it is advisable to keep them at a temperature of 10-12° C for at least two hours before opening, to pull corks carefully and then leave the bottles open for a while so that their full bouquet can develop.

A dry, delicious Riesling from the Pfalz of Germany. This estate has gone through a makeover of sorts with the recently new winemaker. The results have been nothing but great. Different than the past but wonderful as well. Give this bottle a try if you're looking to see what's new at Müller-Catoir.
