Description

Weingut Eugen Müller started out in 1767 as a barrel cooperage yet did not start producing wine until 1935. Kurt Müller and his son, Stephan represent the third and fourth generation running the estate today. Together, they look after their 17 hectares of sustainably farmed Riesling vineyards around the village of Forst which are some of the finest in all of Pfalz. Here is what importer, Terry Thiese has to say about this Spätlese Trocken, “It is, you guessed it, the very same Pechstein as is otherwise bottled as “GG” from VDP estates. Here it is a dry Spätlese, which means that unlike the “GG” category, this cannot be chaptalized*. Tasted through the periscope, it seemed to be hyacinth-y and a crackly spice-driven wine, almost minty and almost austere, but the finish was interestingly smooth, balanced and long. A wine for Riesling-lovers who don’t mind wines that aren’t cuddly.” — Terry Theise
