Scharzhofberger Riesling Auslese 2013

Egon Müller

Müller’s Auslesen are made from noble not affected, hand selected bunches, typically semi-sweet or sweet, with some noble rot character, as the vineyard does not treat the vines against botrytis. This adds new dimensions of character to both the bouquet and taste of the wines.

    "A rich and creamy style, with plenty of honeyed notes to the peach, pear and apricot flavors, lengthening out nicely. Pastry accents fill the buoyant finish, which offerings almond and mineral details. Complex and multi-layered. Drink now through 2040."

    "Egon Mller's 2013 Scharzhof Riesling contains the whole declassified pickings of Le Galais' Wiltinger Braune Kupp, as well as the fruit from younger vines or declassified grapes from the Scharzhofberg. Pale-green as always, the wine opens clear and discreet but ripe, intense, lime-fresh and floral on the nose displaying green apple, Waldmeister and botrytis aromas intertwined with aristocratic slate flavors as subtle as possible. Stunningly dense and full-bodied on the palate, this intense and slightly sweet, elegant, minerally structured and stringent Saar Riesling reveals a remarkable complexity and a good aging potential. In case you can't (or don't want to) afford the sumptuous Scharzhofberger predicates, the 2013 Scharzhof Riesling is a good and potent alternative."
