The wines of Egon Müller are a household name worldwide. The legendary reputation of this winery is mainly based on its noble sweet wines. These have an unprecedented storage potential and surpass many red wines. Legendary wines with world fame are those from: 1997 and 1999. The wines of Egon Müller-Scharzhof are so sought after that they fetch record prices every year at the wine auction in Trier and the ratings of Parker and Suckling are often very close to the maximum 100 points limit.
The total vineyard property comprises 8 hectares, of which 7 hectares are owned in Scharzhof. The famous vineyard, Wiltinger Braune Kupp is wholly owned by Egon Müller. The resulting wines bear the name 'Le Gallais.'
From 2000, a changing of the guard took place. Stefan Fabian took over as cellar master from Horst Frank. Winemaking at Scharzhof is very traditional and minimalist, ie the quality is 100% created in the vineyard. Minimal intervention is therefore made in the cellar, so that the terroir can be fully expressed. Egon Müller's philosophy is still a resounding truth: quality originates in the vineyard and through which the finest wines are created.
The Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Spätlese brilliant, super accurate with everything in balance. On the nose, this top Riesling is spicy with clear, elegant, deep and terroir-typical nose with mango and papaya aromas. On the palate aromas of tropical fruit and the wine is juicy and elegant with a refined and seamless taste leading to a salty-spicy, mouth-watering and stimulating finish with great finesse and precision. This is Scharzhofberger at its best and a Spätlese that is close to perfection!
Suckling writes about the Egon Müller Scharzhof Scharzhofberger Spätlese "Where in the world can you find floral honey that's this fine? The fragrance of this is a masterpiece of elegance"
