Eugen Muller Forster Vom Basalt Riesling Kabinett 2017
This '17 Kabinett is so pretty and polished, perhaps the best vintage ever ('perhaps' only because I've said this before); flowers, stones, brine, like the residue, the indirect flavor of something you marinated.
The rich texture and subtly sweet character are balanced by a firm structure and piercing acidity in this version, with apricot and mineral notes. The long finish is concentrated, with slight tartness, so better to be patient. Best from 2021 through 2026. 150 cases imported.
