Tasting Notes

(Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese) AP: 12 20. The 2018er Scharzhofberger Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese AP 12 was made from dried berries harvested at “rarely seen Oechsle degrees,” to take the comment from the Estate, and was fermented down to fully noble-sweet levels of residual sugar. This bright yellow-colored offers a surprisingly subtle and still rather backward nose made of grapefruit puree, cassis, almond cream, pineapple, coconut, apricot, and subtle floral elements. The wine is almost cloying at first but then a firework of flavors enhanced by gorgeously juicy acidity kicks in and brings the sweetness literally to life. The finish is still sweet, but the underlying balance and, above all, incredibly finesse and lively subtlety of the wine are simply to die for. Wine does certainly not get better than this, just different. This noble-sweet wine is sheer perfection! 2033-2068
