2000 Müller-Catoir Mußbacher Eselshaut Rieslaner Spätlese - Germany, Pfalz (11/27/2018)
The things you run across when doing some cellar reorganization...

This was in my inventory, but had not thought about it in years. My last taste was seven years ago, and given the vintage (though not lousy everywhere, lousy reputation) I did not have high hopes, but it was very good. Grilled peach, honey, baking spices and some of that horseradish bite that makes Rieslaner so distinctive were all part of the mix. Still quite sweet, there was plenty of balancing acid, and the finish was long and spicy.

No issues with potentially aging this further, though I suspect it has hit a stasis point, rather than evolving further in any meaningful way.

It was nice to look back on the HGS era at Catoir. We'll never see those wines again.
