2018 Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Riesling Kabinett Saar (Previously $120)

SKU #1446532 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Scharzhofberger Kabinett (AP #2) is brilliant, clear and coolish on the nose, with cold, wet and clayey yet also crunchy slate aromas and bright fruit. Lush and precise, with lingering salinity and mineral expression, this is a complex and structured Scharzhofberger Kabinett with great aging potential. Tasted in June 2019. (SR) Inner quote mark (8/2019)

91-92 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark There are only two Kabinetten from the Scharzhofberg this year, with an old vine bottling also produced. The “regular” Kabinett (this sobriquet seems rather inappropriate when discussing an Egon Müller wine!) is 9.5 percent in alcohol, carries around fifty grams per liter of residual sugar and has acids of 8.5 grams and very low pH this year. The wine is young and very promising, offering up scents of apple, lime, petrol, slate, wild yeasts and an exotic touch of violet in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and fairly powerful in personality, with excellent depth and focus, excellent mineral drive and simply superb grip on the long and very well-balanced finish. As this was just bottled, my score may even be a touch conservative. Inner quote mark (4/2019)

K&L Notes

92 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 02 19. This 2018er Scharzhofberger Kabinett was fermented down to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (53 g/l). It proves quite restrained at first and only gradually reveals elegant and refined scents of pear, white flowers, herbs, gooseberry and spices. The wine is nicely creamy and at first slightly soft and sweet side on the palate before refreshing elements of minty herbs and spices join the party. The finish is nicely delicate, smooth and zesty. This more opulent expression of Kabinett than usual at this fine Estate will need quite some time to integrate its sweetness and fully blossom. 2028-2048."
