    In spite of the concentrated exotic fruit character, this Auslese masterpiece does not impress through weight or density, rather through extreme finesse. No less importantly, all this ripeness is married to staggeringly refreshing acidity and an intense, herbal freshness that leaves you breathless with wonder.

    The 2019 Scharzhofberger Auslese #8 is perfectly clear, precise and flinty on the nicely reductive and spicy nose with its tropical fruit (mango, papaya) aromas and, later, also very fine raisin notes that represent perfect botrytis. On the palate, this is a dense and mouth-filling yet gorgeously fresh, piquant and salty Auslese with perfectly ripe and juicy fruit, great precision, finesse and balance. This is a hedonistic, perfectly balanced and weightless Auslese with a stimulating, fine grip on the long, tensioned, irresistibly seductive finish. This 2019 is a gorgeous yet, unfortunately, expensive Auslese, the only one produced here in 2019 .
