Tasting Notes

Egon Müller's 2017 Scharzhofberger Auslese (AP #7) offers fascinating crunchy, perfectly ripe, almost oily Riesling and dark slate aromas with some iron and herbal notes. This nose represents perfect ripeness, and that’s what you get on the palate: a lush, crystalline and flinty, mouthwateringly salty, fresh and piquant Riesling of great class, complexity and style. Gosh, this is a beautiful and seductive Scharzhofberger of which I wish I had a fuder in my cellar. Absolutely marvelous and a must-taste (or have). Tasted in June 2019.

The 2017er Scharzhofberger Auslese was harvested at a full 120° Oechsle. The wine develops a beautiful pure nose of coconut, under-ripe pineapple, apricot, elderflower, bergamot, passion fruit and delicately honeyed elements. It proves gorgeously smooth and elegant on the hugely focused and delicately playful palate, where layers upon layers of vibrant exotic and orchard fruits mingle with zesty acidity and mineral elements. The finish is smooth, delicately creamy, yet also superbly vibrant and long. This Auslese will please lovers of very pure and refined expressions of noble-sweet Riesling. 2027-2052
