2013 Messmer Muskateller Feinherb
/ Single Bottle
Nose: Notes of rocky marsh, burnt wax, orange peel oil, smoke, kiwi, sea salt. There's a fun interplay and dichotomy between the intense and spice driven exotic fruit and the minerality which keeps changing.
Palate: High acid burst reminds one of a Pfalz dry Riesling right off the bat but there is this weird exotic roundness that I've never seen co-exist with Riesling. There is punch and fat with a real down to earth mouth feel on the finish that lingers but remains consistent in it's high focus mineral driven salty edge.
