  • TASTING NOTE: Even at this level, the fruit is hand-harvested, mainly from the estate’s valley floor holdings, and as always this offers great value. Expect a lightning-bolt of racy freshness, although there’s a healthy serve of ripe citrus generosity, pithy texture, and a lick of minerality to balance this electricity. This is magic with oysters and other shellfish.
  • ABOUT THE WINE: Gutswein is the base classification in the German VDP for house wines that are blended from a variety of estate fruit. Müller-Catoir does not typically export this wine, rather bottles it in one-liter format to sell to local restaurants. Predominately drawn from the 2022 vintage (but including older wines too), this wine is a blend of Riesling (at least 85%), with lesser amounts of Rieslaner, Scheurebe and Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc). 
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: For those new to this Domaine, Müller-Catoir became legendary during the ‘70s and ‘80s under former manager Hans-Günther Schwarz who, supported by the Catoir family, refused to industrialise the Estate, despite the strong trend in that direction in Germany at that time. The wines were one of the few bastions of authenticity and quality in an ocean of mediocrity. Today the quality of the wines is even higher under martin Franzen. Müller-Catoir owns roughly 20 hectares of vines in and around the village of Haardt, in the hills outside Neustadt. The yellow sandstone that dominates here (differing significantly from the red sandstone typically found in Pfalz) delivers a distinctive, smoky kind of minerality. The wines are more yellow fruited and more smoky/mineral. The Estate has long been managed organically (and has been certified since ‘15) and retains its pioneering legacy of low yields and minimal intervention in the cellar. The outstanding vineyard practices, low yields and hand harvesting of only perfectly ripe fruit is the starting point. After that, you have natural ferments, without any yeast addition and no SO2 (until racking/bottling) and long slow aging. This all results in wines of deep fruit, high extract, ripe acidity and powerful vineyard expression.
