Egon Müller - Scharzhofberger Riesling Auslese 2019
OverviewMüller’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.
Additional Details editThis wine displays stony minerality, hints of acacia and lilac, grilled exotic fruit, sweet stone fruits and bracing acidity all combined in perfect harmony. Due to tiny production and high demand, this wine very rare.

"In spite of the concentrated exotic fruit character, this Auslese masterpiece does not impress through weight or density, rather through extreme finesse. No less importantly, all this ripeness is married to staggeringly refreshing acidity and an intense, herbal freshness that leaves you breathless with wonder. Drink or hold."
