Müller-Catoir Haardt Bürgergarten Riesling Erste Lage Trocken

This was my favorite among a range of tasty single-vineyard wines; the site always seems to give intensely bakey Rieslings from its sandy/loessy soil; it was the warmest and most intriguing of the 1er Lage trio; baking bread, crusts, spelt flour – a side of Riesling I love and which is hard to find – not led by fruit or even by mineral; it’s warm, inferential, savory, crackery; fields of flavor but uncanny. You hardly thought wine could taste like this.

Review:
There’s so much peach and apricot beauty in this glass of dry riesling that you feel thankful to the power of nature that made it possible. So deep and so vibrant, but it’s the elegance that makes it shine like a diamond. Very long, silky finish that doesn’t want to let go. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
