Tasting Notes

The 2019 Scharzhofberger Auslese #8 is perfectly clear, precise and flinty on the nicely reductive and spicy nose with its tropical fruit (mango, papaya) aromas and, later, also very fine raisin notes that represent perfect botrytis. On the palate, this is a dense and mouth-filling yet gorgeously fresh, piquant and salty Auslese with perfectly ripe and juicy fruit, great precision, finesse and balance. This is a hedonistic, perfectly balanced and weightless Auslese with a stimulating, fine grip on the long, tensioned, irresistibly seductive finish. This 2019 is a gorgeous yet, unfortunately, expensive Auslese, the only one produced here in 2019 . Tasted in April 2020.

Score: 99Stephan Reinhardt,, August 2020

The 2019er Scharzhofberger Riesling Auslese proves hay-colored and offers a still rather backward but hugely impressive nose made of pear puree, grapefruit, elderflower, subtle honeyed elements, date, and almond cream. The wine is stunningly subtle and alluring, as a focused sense of almond cream is beautifully mingling with some ripe acidity and delicately exotic flavors. The wine retains nevertheless a huge sense of freshness and elegance right into the silky yet racy, and, above all, incredibly classy finish. While already hugely impressive as it stands, we would not be surprised if it eventually will flirt with perfection, especially as it develops its aromatic presence. Whoever is partial to finesse and precision will fall madly in love with this gorgeous beauty. 2034-2059.
