The 2018 Scharzhofberger Kabinett (AP #2) is brilliant, clear and coolish on the nose, with cold, wet and clayey yet also crunchy slate aromas and bright fruit. Lush and precise, with lingering salinity and mineral expression, this is a complex and structured Scharzhofberger Kabinett with great aging potential. Tasted in June 2019.
(Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Riesling Kabinett) AP: 02 19. This 2018er Scharzhofberger Kabinett was fermented down to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (53 g/l). It proves quite restrained at first and only gradually reveals elegant and refined scents of pear, white flowers, herbs, gooseberry and spices. The wine is nicely creamy and at first slightly soft and sweet side on the palate before refreshing elements of minty herbs and spices join the party. The finish is nicely delicate, smooth and zesty. This more opulent expression of Kabinett than usual at this fine Estate will need quite some time to integrate its sweetness and fully blossom. 2028-2048
