Scharzhofberger Kabinett 2017

Egon Müller

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.

    "This features powerful acidity and racy minerality to the rich flavors of nectarine and lemon tart. Stays elegant and refreshing midpalate, while notes of cream emerge on the finish. Give this a few more years to integrate. Best from 2020 through 2027. 63 cases imported."
