Scharzhofberger Spatlese, Egon Muller 2017
The 2017 Scharzhofberger Spätlese AP #6 offers a clear, fine, beautifully ripe and concentrated—though currently pretty closed—bouquet that is still covered by sulfites. Crystalline and mouthfillingly lush and round on the palate, this is a very refined, frisky and playful Riesling with enormous finesse and dancing feather weight on the palate. There are delicate raisin and slate flavors in the aftertaste. This Spätlese has around 71 grams of residual sugar, yet you don’t taste that much of it.

The 2017er Scharzhofberger Spätlese develops an absolutely stunning nose of white peach, white flowers and elderflower with a touch of passion fruit and whipped cream which lift the whole experience to another level. The wine starts off on a delicately smooth side on the palate before a most gorgeous ripe acidity kicks in and lifts up the aromatics in the finish. The wine is still slightly disjointed at this early stage but the finesse and elegance in the seemingly never-ending after-taste are simply stunning. What a brilliant light Auslese in the making! 2027-2052
