Scharzhofberger is one of the finest vineyards in Germany and indeed all Europe. So great is its fame, it remains one of only a handful of German vineyards, whose wines are sold without mention of the village name. Soils are composed of grey and red slates, very loose and well drained, they form a unique synergy with the microclimate to provide singular conditions for Riesling. Riesling grapes exhibiting the requisite qualities of a Spätlese are fermented mostly through the action of wild yeasts in old, thousand litres oak foudres. The wines are raised in ancient cellars which were built by mediaeval monks. The deep, very cold and damp environments make the perfect environment in which to gently age the wines.
Light golden hue. Subtle florals to the bouquet, peach nectar and citrus oils, honey and herb. A judiciously ripe palate exhibiting delicate fruit characters with hints of honeyed botrytis and citrus florals which are supported by a vivid crystalline structure and chillingly fresh acidity. A beguiling finish on lingering notes of juicy fruit/ floral/ nut flavours.
