Description
 
The Rieslings from Egon Müller are widely recognised as amongst the very best in Germany today. He has just under 8 hectares of vines in the world-famous Scharzhofberg vineyard, which includes 3 hectares of ungrafted Riesling vines from the 19th century. Grapes are hand-harvested and then pressed without any skin contact before being fermented in large, 1000 litre oak casks in the natural, cool and deep cellars. The wines are usually bottled 6 months later. Müller`s sweet Rieslings are arguably the finest in Mosel, while his Kabinett and Spätlese wines are unusually fine and elegant.

The 2016 Scharzhofberger Spätlese has a clear and smoky/stony bouquet as well as a very delicate, bright and ripe (yet botrytis-free) Riesling aroma with floral and almost peppery slatey notes—fascinating! Mouth-fillingly lush and piquant on the palate, with beautifully generous, round and elegant fruit, remarkable intensity and length, this is a gorgeous Scharzhofberger made to drink for ages. Don’t drink before 2030, and don’t die before 2060. Tasted March 2018. Wine Advocate 95
