Müller-Catoir, Haardter Mandelring Scheurebe Spätlese Pfalz 2001

Muller-Catoir Haardter Mandelring Scheurebe Spatlese, Pfalz 2001

Intense and esoteric on the nose: drunken melon, ginger, sage, cassis, marjoram, shellfish reduction.  Cool, spicy and musky-feral on the palate: grapefruit, roasted pineapple, gooseberry, mint.  Tangy, keen acidity.  Has a call and answer finish, a dance between sweet and sour. Very long.  Classy its not: this is more exotic, wanton, dangerous.  Rampantly individual, both the varietal and the producer.  It is a wine that challenges you.  Giggly good.  Now – 2016.
