    Given that this reflects very ripe material backed by over 90 grams of residual sugar, it’s amazing how much of the cress-like, green herbal aspect of the site, so prominent in this year’s Kabinetts, is on hand here as well, even on the nose. But those aspects are tempered by a glossy, subtly creamy texture, and allied to a jellied expression of white peach and pear that reflects the extreme ripeness and the bit of botrytis involved. The finish is lusciously persistent yet invigoratingly nippy and consummately refreshing.

    The 2018 Scharzhofberger Spätlese offers a very fine and delicate, coolish, precise and flinty bouquet with bright and elegant fruit notes. On the palate, this is a finessed, beautifully round and lush yet filigreed Spätlese with sensual, silky-textured fruit and a long, complex, well-structured and salty-piquant finish. A gorgeous classic from the Scharzhofberg. Tasted from AP #6 in June 2019.
