Egon Muller Scharzhofberger Riesling Kabinett 2011
Bottle Size: 75cl
Grape Variety: Riesling
As with its 2010 predecessor, accumulated from several lots – in this instance representing picking across a wide range of parcels to achieve material of sufficiently modest must weight and potential levity – the Muller 2011 Scharzhofberger Riesling Kabinett (this year’s sole wine of its Pradikat, and carrying A.P. #2) weighs in at 9.5% alcohol. High-toned mint and wintergreen in the nose as well as delicacy, lift and animation on the palate remind me of this year’s generic Scharzhof bottling. Juicy abundance of fresh apple, pear, and lime are threaded with herbal, floral and stony nuances, culminating in a lusciously sustained, invigoratingly bright and vibrantly animated finish. This should show well through at least 2025. 91 Points. Tasted October 2013. David Schildknecht. Robert Parker.
