2018 Egon Muller Scharzhofberger Riesling Spatlese Mosel Germany

$234.99 USD

Given that this reflects very ripe material backed by over 90 grams of residual sugar, it’s amazing how much of the cress-like, green herbal aspect of the site, so prominent in this year’s Kabinetts, is on hand here as well, even on the nose. But those aspects are tempered by a glossy, subtly creamy texture, and allied to a jellied expression of white peach and pear that reflects the extreme ripeness and the bit of botrytis involved. The finish is lusciously persistent yet invigoratingly nippy and consummately refreshing.
