Weingut-Müller-Catoir - Scherube, Pfalz, Germany (2020)
An exotic bouquet of flowers, this dry wine has a salty bite to it and beautifully integrated acidity. Ripe yellow and golden apples provide a lovely mouth-fulling texture. Across a long finish, the wine shows pineapple, grapefruit and gooseberry. Drink or hold.
Müller-Catoir is now in its 9th generation of owning and working these vineyards since 1744 in the Mittelhaardt within the boundaries of Haardt, Gimmeldingen and Mußbach, districts of Neustadt an der Weinstrasse.
