Müller-Catoir Riesling Auslese Haardter Bürgergarten 2004

Member Review by Wendy Crispell:

Lusciously sweet with notes of dried orange peel, candied apricot and savory richness. Pair with foie gras on french toast points and blood orange marmalade. Simply heaven....

Surprisingly flavoursome; full-bodied and very racy, rich in extract and with a fruity acidity structure. All wines are made from grapes from the winery's own vineyards. The harvest is limited through restrictive vine pruning in the winter, supplemented by partial removal of grapes in the summer. Soil is given meticulous care (mostly permanent green cover) and there is selective hand-picking of very small grape quantities without use of a combine-harvester. The result of these methods are high extract figures, ripe acidity and a definitive character for each variety, making even small vintages full-bodied and top-class. Since grapes are always harvested extremely late on this estate, the musts are cold when they arrive in the cellar and so ferment slowly without any interference. After racking to remove yeast, wines are not touched again until they are filled into bottles. During bottled storage, these non-moved wines usually precipitate tartrate crystals and may sparkle slightly. So it is advisable to keep them at a temperature of 10-12° C for at least two hours before opening, to pull corks carefully and then leave the bottles open for a while so that their full bouquet can develop.

Despite the high level of sugar in this Auslese, the balancing acidity shines through clearly, giving this wine tart notes of lemon. Perfect botrytis, perfect structure.

Almost unbelievably, the 2004 Haardter Burgergarten Riesling Auslese - harvested on the cusp of Trockenbeerenauslese must weight - ratchets up the complexity, richness and depth. Lemon cream, toasted almond, musk, caramelized apricot, malt, mine... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Riesling wine from Pfalz in Germany. 2004 Muller-Catoir Haardter Burgergarten Riesling Auslese 375ml

Despite the high level of sugar in this Auslese, the balanced acidity comes through, giving this wine a tart lemon notes. Perfect botrytis and structure. Müller-Catoir has done it again.
