Scharzhofberg is one of the most famous vineyard sites in Germany, likely to have originally been planted by the Romans. Situated in Wiltingen, removed from the Saar in a side valley and facing south, its slopes are quite steep, with a 30–60% grade, and high, at 180-280 meters elevation. Formed from grey Devonian slate, the soils are very deep with no bedrock. This wine is always delicate, crisp and exquisite on the palate.
Pale yellow in color. Pure, fresh and intense minerality. Floral, fruity and mineral scents of apple, pine and berry. A beautiful wine complemented by it’s intense qualities.
