The 2018 Scharzhofberger Spätlese offers a very fine and delicate, coolish, precise and flinty bouquet with bright and elegant fruit notes. On the palate, this is a finessed, beautifully round and lush yet filigreed Spätlese with sensual, silky-textured fruit and a long, complex, well-structured and salty-piquant finish. A gorgeous classic from the Scharzhofberg. Tasted from AP #6 in June 2019.
(Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Riesling Spätlese) AP: 06 19. The 2018er Scharzhofberger Spätlese was fermented down to sweet levels of residual sugar (92 g/l). It delivers a quite rich spectrum of ripe fruits including mango, pineapple, almond cream, yellow peach, candied grapefruit and pear on the nose. The wine proves beautifully playful on the palate, where ripe flavors of fruits are well wrapped into creamy spices, minty herbs and smoke and leaves a quite opulent and almost forceful feel of creamy and exotic fruits in the impressively long finish. 2026-2048
