2016 Egon Müller ‘Scharzhof’ Riesling, Mosel
“Super-fresh, wild herbal and berry nose. Very pure and racy with a lot of drive. Tastes drier and lighter than the 2015, but this is another classic example of the house style. Drink any time during the next five years.“ - James Suckling, 91 Points
“Stark, electric acidity bolsters this intensely steely yet deeply fruity off-dry Riesling. It's a cutting, spine tingling wine pulsating with staccato hits of white grapefruit, stone fruit and citrus flavors. The finish is gossamer and sheer yet endless.” - Wine Enthusiast Magazine, 93 Points
All Müller wines are Rieslings; “Scharzhof” is the property’s most accessible wine. “Scharzhof” is made utilizing grapes from Müller’s Saarburg and Wawern vineyards, and from the Wiltinger Braunfels and Wiltinger Kupp vineyards. This wine is a sterling introduction to Riesling and to the Egon Müller range.
