Rudolph Muller Riesling Kabinett 2004
Founded in"1919 Rudolf Muller is one of the most traditional and respected wine producers in the Mosel Valley. Their state of the art winery and long-term grower contracts guarantee the first class quality of the wines.""
Quality control starts with the careful selection of the grapes, musts and wines, which are then subjected to stringent chemical analysis and must pass severe sensory tests before being purchased. Diligent craftmanship and the long years of experience are part of Rudolph Muller's tradition. Modern wine cellar technology and innovative production methods guarantee continual first class quality of their wines.
Rudolf Muller sets the standard for the finest of qualities during the making of our wines by using the newest technical devices. During the bottling process, the specific gravity of the wines is continually spotchecked to ensure the highest possible quality. An ultramodern computer-controlled bottling plant guarantees the high quality of their wines as well as effective production from start to finish. Through every step of production from buying to bottling, Rudoplh Muller's wines are systematically checked and analysed by their own officially licensed laboratory.
Recognized as a top quality grape here since the Middle Ages, Germany retains its high reputation as a premier source of the finest Riesling. Heavily planted throughout the Rheingau and Mosel, Riesling responds splendidly to these regions’ extreme climatic and topographic challenges. Cold-hardy enough to survive freezing winters, and sturdy enough to withstand the warm sun, Riesling has enough natural acidity to maintain balance, even in wines with the highest levels of residual sugar. While high quality is possible in all points of the sweet to dry spectrum, Riesling typically produces wine with relatively low alcohol, high acidity, steely minerality, stone fruit, citrus, spice and floral notes. With age, Riesling can become truly revelatory, developing unique, complex aromatics, often with a hint of petrol.
