Description

Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Riesling Kabinett 2017

Scharzhofberg is one of the most famous vineyard sites in Germany, likely to have originally been planted by the Romans. Situated in Wiltingen, removed from the Saar in a side valley and facing south, its slopes are quite steep, with a 30–60% grade, and high, at 180-280 meters elevation. Formed from grey Devonian slate, the soils are very deep with no bedrock. This wine is always delicate, crisp and exquisite on the palate.

This Kabinett offers a gorgeous nose with residual scents from spontaneous fermentation, white peach, elderflower, cassis and herbs. The wine develops a gorgeous and delicately ripe feel with Spätlese creamy presence on the palate. The finish is engaging and subtly racy. The after-taste is lively and driven by peach and flowery elements. This is a beautiful fruity wine in the making with slightly more presence than the usual Kabinett from Egon Müller. It is however a smasher of a 'light Spätlese', with plenty of upside potential if it retains its focus at maturity
