WTN: Müller-Catoir Rieslaner

by David M. Bueker » Tue Apr 07, 2020 7:38 pm

  • 2000 Müller-Catoir Mußbacher Eselshaut Rieslaner Spätlese - Germany, Pfalz (4/7/2020)
    And so another Hans Gunter Schwarz wine passes into memory. But wow what a memory. My immediate thought was that the Rieslaner had been dosed with 25% Scheurebe, the grapefruit and sage aromas were that strong. An hour later and a few degrees warmer, and the scritchy, feral Rieslaner personality asserted itself. Orange zest with a dash of horseradish, honey laced with ginger, each sip enticingly sweet, but also with a spicy finish. Sad that this one is gone, but lucky to have had the opportunity.

I had the 2001 ten years ago. I know I loved M-C, especially their Rieslaner and the Scheurbe, but it's a little depressing that it's been that long and that I've haven't bought anything really expensive and great from the house since then. My last purchase, I bought a handful of Spatleses that I drank up 6-7 years ago . It's not only because of the changes at M-C, but the fact that the local importers disgust me.
