Scharzhof Riesling QBA 2019 Egon Muller
€ 47,80 (in. BTW)
The bright colored 2019 Riesling Scharzhof displays very fine Saar typicity on the nose. This is like a spring mountain river full of Riesling rolling over crushed slate. It is highly delicate but lush and sexy, with great precision, crystalline acidity and lingering salinity, finishing with just the right amount of residual sugar. Impressively long and tensioned on the pure and stimulating finish, this is just gorgeous and possibly the most fascinating Scharzhof I have tasted in 20 years. The times of calling this is a Best Buy are long gone, but if you ant to taste the DRC of Riesling, you should definitely try it. Tasted in April 2020.

For the estate-riesling category, this is an impressively complete wine with white and yellow-peach, ripe-gooseberry and fresh-mint aromas. Medium-dry, succulent and vibrant with a very long, clean, minty finish.
