Thungersheimer Scharlachberg Müller Thurgau Kabinett Juliusspiltal 1983, Germany

My Rating 83 Points.

Price $50.

Light golden in color with a wide see thru rim.

On the nose, lemons, citrus, grapefruits, minerals, tropical fruits, diesel and spring water.

Light to medium in body with medium plus acidity, watery and a little creamy.

Dry on the palate with lemons, grapefruits, citrus and light cream.

Short finish with almonds and limes.

This 34 year old Müller Thurgau Kabinett is drinkable, but had better days…

Showing a watery mouthfeel with nice balance, but very little fruit is left. This was more for the experience than the taste. And a great experience it was!

Needs 30 minutes to open up.

On the bottle, it says 9 to 12% alcohol by volume, but I think it’s in the 11% range.

I enjoyed it with escargot in spinach sauce.
