2021 Enderle & Moll Muller-Thurgau "Pur", Baden, Germany

Totally exuberant in aroma, the mind goes to North African spices, perfumed ripe melon, papaya and the full gamut of grapes. This is almost luxurious in aromatics if not texture, so clear and fresh.



From 45 year old vines on limestone and sandstone, this sees a bit more of the skins than the other wines this vintage. 6 days of maceration then softly pressed into barrel and into stainless steel with 40% of the skins added back in. It matures for 10 months on the full lees. No filtration and low sulfur added at bottling.


This estate is really just two guys, a tiny cellar, a few hectares of old vines and a hell of a lot of buzz – even Jancis Robinson has called them “cult.” Farming some of the oldest vines in Baden, Sven Enderle and Florian Moll craft complex, earthy and superbly detailed Pinot Noirs that will completely redefine how you view German reds, to say nothing of their stunningly textural yet buoyant and defined skin-contact white wines. They are one of the first German red wine producers to emphasize lightness, transparency, finesse. They are the benchmark producer for natural, Burgundy-esque German Pinot Noir, period, end. The white wines, though a small part of their production, are revelations in skin-contact whites; transparent and energetic. Farming is organic/biodynamic, no additives, no filters, minimal sulfur.
