Professional Wine Reviews for Eugen Muller Forster Jesuitengarten Riesling Kabinett Trocken 2016

Rated 88 by Vinous Media
Cooling, site-typical notes of mint and basil suffuse juicy fresh pear and apple on a lush but (at 12% alcohol) by no means weighty palate. Presumably on account of relatively low acidity coupled with very ripe fruit flavors and high glycerol, this comes off as very discreetly (and by no means unpleasantly) sweet – a rare phenomenon among legally dry German Rieslings. While I could wish for a bit more cut or complexity of a mineral sort, the finish is soothing and admirably sustained.

Winery Eugen Muller

Region: Pfalz

The beautiful, windswept valleys of Germany's Pfalz region has long been regarded as a flagship region for the country's wine culture, and today, hundreds of wineries have made this ancient region their home. With over twenty five thousand hectares of Pfalz under vine, it is the second largest wine producing region in the country, and yet the main focus of Pfalz wine is on quality over quantity, with careful attention paid to the flavors and aromas of the wines each winery produces. Traditional techniques remain strong, and the dozens of grape varietals which flourish in the relatively warm and dry climate of the region are used to create wines which are distinctly Germanic in style, with vintners keen to show off the finest features of their stunning terroir.

Country: Germany

As in many Old World countries, the rise of viticulture in Germany came about as a result of the Roman Empire, who saw the potential for vine cultivation in the vast flatlands around the base of the Rhine valley. Indeed, for over a thousand years, Germany's wine production levels were enormous, with much of the south of the country being used more or less exclusively for growing grapes. Over time, this diminished to make way for expanding cities and other types of industries, but Southern Germany remains very much an important wine region within Europe, with many beautifully balanced and flavorful German wines being prized by locals and international wine lovers alike. The hills around Baden-Baden and Mannheim are especially noteworthy, as these produce the high end of the characteristic semi-sweet white wines which couple so perfectly with German cheeses and pickled vegetables. However, all of Germany's wine producing regions have something special and unique to offer, and are a joy to explore and experience.
