2014 Fürst "Pur Mineral" Müller-Thurgau Franken (Previously $23)

SKU #1219764

The Fürst family has been involved in viticulture since 1638. In 1975, while attending the Geisenheim school for viticulture, Paul Fürst's father, Rudolf, passed away suddenly. Paul immediately left his studies and at age 21 took over the estate to carry on the family tradition in the cramped Fürst residence in Bürgstadt (Franken). In 1979 Paul and his wife Monika started building a new estate on the outskirts of town. This included a new residence and state-of-the-art cellar atop the Centgrafenberg vineyard. The new site provides breathtaking views of the Main river valley and the picturesque medieval town of Miltenberg. Work in the vineyards is done with great care. It is all done by hand including cut-back to one bow per vine, thinning the foliage to assure good air circulation, cutting out fruit to assure reduced yield and very careful selection during the harvest. Treatment of the vines and soil is near organic and as close to natural as possible. Paul Fürst makes remarkably elegant wines for a region renowned for rusticity. This traditional Müller-Thurgau offers crystalline purity with a near-silky palate, but is true to varietal and terroir. (Eric Story, K&L German Wine Buyer)

Germany

- Thanks to a recent string of excellent vintages and to the reemergence of Germany onto the international wine writing scene, this is a country that's hot, hot, hot! Germany is divided into 13 wine Region and produces a very wide variety of wine styles, from incredibly high-acid, dry wines to some of the sweetest, most unctuous concoctions on the planet and even a few surprisingly hearty reds. Most of the highest-quality wines are grown on steep banks along the rivers in these Region. Small vineyards are still mostly hand tended and picked, due to the difficult nature of mechanization on these slopes. White wine production accounts for nearly 80% of the total with Riesling being the most important varietal, though Muller-Thurgau is still more widely planted.
