Müller-Catoir Gimmeldinger Riesling Kabinett

Again I chose the more fascinating, even demanding, of two options. The scent is a riot of every fragrant leaf, led by sweet mint. The palate jabs with smelling-salt penetration. The mineral crush is large and stubborn. It’s an introvert’s poem of green and gray.

Review:
Theoretically, climate change has made this category impossible in the warm and friendly Pfalz, but this proves that it can work spectacularly well. A whole basket of fruit, most importantly pink grapefruit, but also so many fresh-herb aromas. Almost no perceptible sweetness and that’s what makes this such a cool food wine. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
