Müller’s Auslesen are made from noble not affected, hand selected bunches, typically semi-sweet or sweet, with some noble rot character, as the vineyard does not treat the vines against botrytis. This adds new dimensions of character to both the bouquet and taste of the wines.
“2015 is certainly a great vintage. After the summer one would look for parallels with 2003 and they are there: The volume of the harvest is the same, almost to the litre. The overall aspect of the grapes was similar. Green, turning to golden with very little Botrytis and the must weights are on the same level. One difference is easily explained with the weather during the harvest: While it wasn’t at all difficult to harvest great Auslese and while we did succeed in making a Trockenbeerenauslese, at that level the record breaking Oechsle of 2003 were never within reach. Acidity levels that are often twice as high as those of the 2003s and 2 or 3 g higher than those of the 2007s or 2009s. Once again we seem to have a vintage without precedent this is one that we can expect to enjoy.” – Egon Müller
This wine displays stony minerality, hints of acacia and lilac, grilled exotic fruit, sweet stone fruits and bracing acidity all combined in perfect harmony. Due to tiny production and high demand, this wine very rare.
