2018 Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Riesling Spätlese Mosel (Saar) (1.5L)

SKU #1446538 94-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2018 Scharzhofberger Spätlese offers a very fine and delicate, coolish, precise and flinty bouquet with bright and elegant fruit notes. On the palate, this is a finessed, beautifully round and lush yet filigreed Spätlese with sensual, silky-textured fruit and a long, complex, well-structured and salty-piquant finish. A gorgeous classic from the Scharzhofberg. Tasted from AP #6 in June 2019.(SR)  (8/2019)

94 points John Gilman

 This is the only Spätlese from the Scharzhofberg this year and it is a beauty. The wine is bright, pure and aromatically expressive (particularly for right after its mise), wafting from the glass in a refined blend of pear, white cherries, a lovely base of slate, bee pollen, lime blossoms and still a touch of wild yeasts in the upper register. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied, complex and beautifully detailed, with a lovely core, bright acids and a long, vibrant and very classy finish. A quintessential Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Spätlese. (Drink between 2026-2080)  (4/2019)

K&L Notes

93pts Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 06 19. The 2018er Scharzhofberger Spätlese was fermented down to sweet levels of residual sugar (92 g/l). It delivers a quite rich spectrum of ripe fruits including mango, pineapple, almond cream, yellow peach, candied grapefruit and pear on the nose. The wine proves beautifully playful on the palate, where ripe flavors of fruits are well wrapped into creamy spices, minty herbs and smoke and leaves a quite opulent and almost forceful feel of creamy and exotic fruits in the impressively long finish. 2026-2048."
