Tasting Notes

The 2016 Scharzhofberger Eiswein (AP #7) is beautifully clear and piquant, showing superbly precise and concentrated fruit (pineapple) aromas. Lush, round and piquant on the palate, with precise and fine fruit and gorgeous salinity, this is a terribly long and complex Scharzhofeberger with a mineral and piquant finish that mimics lime and grapefruit flavors and breaking slate stones. In short, this is a picture-book Eiswein, the first since 2012, and it was marketed without auction. Drink 2018-2070.

Score: 98Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate (236), April 2018

This Eiswein was harvested on November 30 and December 5 with similar must levels on both days. It offers an absolutely stunning nose of passion fruit, pear, elderflower, apricot, herbs and fine spices on the nose. The wine proves gorgeously deep and beautifully balanced on the palate, where ravishingly creamy orchard fruits including apricot mingle with succulent and not over-powering acidity (the Eiswein character only comes delicately through in the after-taste at this stage). The finish is still on the sweet side but this should develop into a cracker of an Eiswein in a decade and more, once the sweetness will have mellowed away. What a beauty! Drink 2026-2051.
