Professional Wine Reviews for Eugen Muller Forster Kirchenstuck Riesling Auslese 2016

Rated 90 by Vinous Media
Lime, white peach and apple wreathed in freesia deliver a pungent, piquantly pit- and seed-tinged aromatic message. A tart fruit-skin edge, along with the aforementioned piquancy, serves as pleasing counterpoint on a palate of oily richness. There isn’t the musky or decadent side of Kirchenstück here, and perhaps little of the site’s mystery, either. But it’s early days for such a wine, and over time, as its sense of sweetness (which is in any case modest) and its infant gloss recede, there may well be much to contemplate. Meantime, the sheer succulence of apple and white peach judiciously reinforced by residual sugar and complemented by a botrytis-induced hint of truffle makes for a winsome as well as suitably persistent finish.

Winery Eugen Muller

Region: Pfalz

Germany's beautiful wine region of Pfalz is widely regarded as being one of the finest in the country, with a wine culture and history which stretches back to the first century A.D, when Romans brought grape varietals and their extensive knowledge of viticulture to these fertile lands. With a climate highly similar to that of Alsace, and excellent soils found throughout the region, the hundreds of wineries which operate in Pfalz have great success each year when it comes to producing unique and highly characterful wines for global consumption. The excellent climatic conditions also mean that a wide variety of grape species thrives in Pfalz, making this a fascinating region to explore and enjoy, with red and white wines of real elegance and distinction being produced for the global market.

Country: Germany

Despite being known primarily for sweet and semi-sweet white wines, Germany actually produces a surprisingly large and varied range of wines, with many reaching an extremely high standard and being very well received on the world stage. The terrain across much of the southern parts of the country is extremely fertile, with mineral rich soils adding a wonderful edge to already excellent grapes, and thus resulting in delicious and highly elegant white and rosé wines. The climate in many parts of Germany also allows for some more unusual wine-making practices, with certain regions specializing in the highly aromatic and distinctive 'ice-wines' which are gaining popularity by those looking for something a little more intense and unusual. With these wines, the producers allow the grapes to freeze through the early frosts, resulting in a higher sugar content and a fantastic set of flavors and aromas in the finished product. Germany has long since favored quality over quantity, and a new enthusiasm for fine wine within the country is producing truly exciting results, using a blending of traditional and contemporary techniques.
