Burgergarten Riesling Trocken, Muller-Catoir

The name “Bürgergarten” is a reinterpretation of the old term “Bergergarten”, which refers to a garden situated on a hill. The very deep soil, which has been used for wine production for centuries, is composed of weathered yellow sandstone interspersed with layer of loess and clay. The special “Haardt sandstone” is still being produced today in the nearby quarry.

Tasting Notes

Convincing! Highly gingery aroma; the palate is decidedly dry, talc-y and spicy; quite long and salty; still pointedly not-sweet (in the German way) but not—in this case—austere, unless you find Trimbach, Josmeyer or Agapé’s wines austere. – Terry Theise
