I wanted to get a batch of more serious old Mullen dry and off dry Spatlesen and dry Auslesen over I had the 1998 Martin Muellen Krover Paradies Auslese Trocken, which can be had for as little as $34.99 on the 4-pack, (thanks to the strong dollar it is cheaper than before) the other night at a dinner with clients and it absolutely blew my mind. It was as they say, and I hate that I am saying this, firing on all cylinders. It was just ethereal wine and a stunning experience. It went too quick for me to see it evolve it was that good. The aromatics were uplifting and it wafted from the glass with just layers of slate/leather/smoke and some apricot fruit. More of the dried kind. The nose is secondary I would say at this point with tertiary aromas peeking through.
