Winzerhof Burrlein, Mainstockheimer Hofstück, Müller-Thurgau trocken, 2009
Reviewed in our Müller-Thurgau report:
Straw-coloured, this smells sweetly, and even somewhat exuberantly, of sweet apples and peaches, with some canned fruit salad and the faintest touch of Ingwer. Not a miracle of mineral depth, but so far, we're having fun.
The same kind of in-your-face fruit reappears on the palate, and now there is even a hint of minerality. But still, there is more fruit than there is structure, with a finish that is herbally sweet, but also a little watery.
A well-made wine with flattering fruit and some herbal character that won't blow anyone away - except 95 % of the world's white wines on the market for this kind of price.
