Tasting Notes

The 2018 Scharzhofberger Auslese (AP #9) –Gold Capsule– is very clear but concentrated and aromatic on the still SO2-covered nose that needs a lot of aeration to breathe and develop its true character. Round, very delicate and fresh on the palate, this is a noble sweet, salty-piquant and enormously stimulating Auslese with a long, complex, well-structured and mineral finish with fine raisin aromas, and it keeps the finesse and freshness of the Scharzhofberg terroir from the beginning to the very end. Tasted in June 2019.

The 2018er Scharzhofberger Auslese GK was fermented down to fully noble-sweet levels of residual sugar (180 g/l). It delivers admirably attractive and complex scents of roasted pineapple, honey, pear, beeswax, mirabelle, apricot and smoke. The wine coats the palate with juicy, honeyed and intense notes of exotic fruits, honey and tar. The finish is very intense, superbly long and vibrating. This beautiful BA in all but name is hugely impressive yet still immensely sweet and on the baroque side of things at this early stage. It could well need two decades to integrate its sweetness and fully shine. 2038-2088
