Tasting Notes

The 2018 Scharzhofberger Auslese (AP #8) is coolish, clear, intense and concentrated on the flinty and even rocky nose with its crunchy notes of broken slate and lemon juice. On the palate, this is a generous, highly elegant and refined, beautifully balanced and salty-crystalline Auslese with concentrated but detailed, elegant fruit, finely grained minerals and a long, complex finish. An impressive, great vin de terroir. Tasted in June 2019.

(Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Riesling Auslese) AP: 08 19. The 2018er Scharzhofberger Auslese was fermented down to noble-sweet levels of residual sugar (114 g/l). It delivers a rich yet elegant nose of whipped almond cream, candied vineyard peach, spices and pear. The wine is extremely rich and sweet on the palate at this early stage. Notes of mango, roasted pineapple and almond cream give the wine the full presence of a luscious Auslese lange GK. The finish is structured, intense and very long, yet also quite opulent. This impressive noble-sweet wine will need quite some time to absorb its residual sugar and could well exceed our high expectations as it develops its finesse with age. 2038-2068
