Egon Müller Riesling Kabinett Scharzhofberger 2007
The Müller family own just 7 hectares in the famous Scharzhofberg vineyard in Wiltingen, which lies on the River Saar, not far from where it drains into the Mosel, just downstream from Saarburg. The family exploit their single vineyard holding to the full, and consequently are ranked among the region's top wine producers. The estate has been in the hands of the Müller family since the late 18th century. The Scharzhofberg vineyard is typically well drained slate, and the section owned by the Müllers is dominated by Riesling, with just a small area planted up with other varieties. The Wine Doctor writes: “this wine immediately displays an extra dimension in comparison to the estate Riesling. It has a beautiful presence on the palate, with again a fabulously precise acidity. It is pure, minerally, slatey even, with a great, light and lifted style. A brilliantly composed wine. 18-18.5+/20 (June 2008)”.
Pale gold, medium intensity, steely and apply bouquet, palette almost dry but with lots of honey flavours, together with green apple, lime, and a touch of pink grapefruit. High acidity, medium bodied with a luscious mouth feel. Beautifully balanced. Long finish. Very good.
Best Riesling in the World !! Superb, wonderful, fantastic !! One of the greatest wine in the World
