Markus Molitor: Do I Detect delicious?
Do I detect delicious? This is the first question one must ask themselves upon examining any wine of any supposed caliber. Sometimes we can just make ourselves dizzy focusing on the technical verbiage associated with a drink that’s meant to give pleasure. Are those terpenes I’m picking up? I’ll swear on my life there’s some grapefruit pith in there. Anyone else have a headache?
Outside of the obsession with tasting note creativity, an epidemic afflicting the wine consuming community is the fixation on dry wine virtue signaling. Oh, how many times I’ve heard a restaurant guest or customer proclaim that they “only drink dry wines.” This type of statement is usually following by said individual picking up or ordering a zinfandel or cabernet-based wine with copious residual sugar. How do we rationalize this? I’ve got one word. Balance.
Wine quality is about balance, and balance works in chorus with delicious. There’s no clearer example of this relationship than the feinherb style of Riesling. The addition of a few grams of residual sugar brings these wines into a harmonious delivery, where the acid has been integrated and the fruitiness and aroma lifted. Molitor’s green capsules embody this style and signify visually to the consumer that they’re really in for a masterclass on Riesling structure.
Below you’ll find all the available Molitor wines in the Green Capsule category at Vinopolis. We’ve got quite a few no surprise. We carry the best. If you want to see Riesling dance then you won’t want to miss your chance to grab a case.
