Description
 
The Rieslings from Egon Müller are widely recognised as amongst the very best in Germany today. He has just under 8 hectares of vines in the world-famous Scharzhofberg vineyard, which includes 3 hectares of ungrafted Riesling vines from the 19th century. Grapes are hand-harvested and then pressed without any skin contact before being fermented in large, 1000 litre oak casks in the natural, cool and deep cellars. The wines are usually bottled 6 months later. Müller`s sweet Rieslings are arguably the finest in Mosel, while his Kabinett and Spätlese wines are unusually fine and elegant. Egon III extended the winery in 1954 by purchasing Weingut "Le Gallais". This winery with 2.5 hectares (6.2 acres) vines in Wiltingen, comprising the single vineyards „Kupp“ and „braune Kupp“ hailed originally from family Metz.

The 2015 Wiltinger Braune Kupp Riesling Spätlese #5 is super clear, precise and aromatic-piquant on the nose, with highly fine stone fruit flavors and a cool-like, flinty earth aroma. Round, lush and piquant on the palate, with a perfectly ripe but fresh fruit, this is a dense, complex and persistently structured Spätlese. Salty-mineral and perfectly balanced, this has great elegance and expression. Wine Advocate 94
