Egon Muller Scharzofberger Riesling Spatlese 2015
Spatlese means “late harvest” but at Egon Muller, the term is used for wines made from grapes of superior ripeness or even from overripe grapes. The harvest usually begins very late and the weather is variable, so the ripest grapes often come from the best parcels rather than a later harvest date. Spatlese wines can carry more sugar than Kabinett without losing their balance. While they’re off-dry to semi-sweet when young, they reward cellaring with an incredible degree of complexity. The Wiltinger braune Kupp vineyard tends to be more full-bodied, while the Scharzhofberger can develop into truly elegant wines that defy the categories of sweet and dry.
Wine EnthusiastRacy and deeply mineral, yet buoyantly fruity, this wine embodies the best from the Mosel's fantastic 2015 vintage. It's lavishly forward in ripe yellow peach, apricot and honeydew flavors, yet bracingly high in acidity. Satisfyingly rich in extract yet feather light, it finishes long, with shards of slate and crushed mineral. Stunning already, it should continue to improve through 2030, likely beyond.
Wine SpectatorRich and refined, with well-sculpted flavors of white currant, flint, apple and green pear. Dried apricot notes fill in the midpalate, with a long, minerally finish that features savory herbal accents. Very fresh. Best from 2034 through . 20 cases imported.
Adult Signature is required for every shipment.
