2019 Muller Catoir

2019 Muller Catoir Haardt Trocken Riesling $29.99
Still very youthful and a little closed, this is so deep and cool, almost dark, in spite of the fresh pineapple and fresh-herb notes. Stunning concentration and finesse for a village wine. Very long finish that is simultaneously silky and mineral. From organically grown grapes

2019 Muller Catoir Burgergarten Im Beumel Grosse Gewachs $69.99
Like the first rosebud of the season that has fully colored, but is only just beginning to open up, this is full of promise. Densely packed with minerals and positive tannins that are neatly wrapped in creaminess from lees contact, this is locked into its own time frame. You really need to give it a lot of air for the mirabelle, nectarine and mandarin notes to emerge. Then there’s a stunning interplay of fruit and structure through the long, very complete finish.

2019 Muller Catoir Mandelgarten Spatlese Riesling $41.99 
Dense apricot aromas, but none of the honey that normally accompanies this type of ripeness in this style. Serious concentration and spot-on balance. Stunning freshness at the precise, sharp finish that shoots off into the heavens. From organically grown grapes
