2016 Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Spätlese

Posted by Joe Salamone

Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Spätlese is simply magical. For many of you, this will sound trite.

Müller's Spätlese always dazzles.

The 2016 is a fascinating vintage for the wine. It's seriously dense along with being steely and electric. The combination leaves the impression that this is one for the ages.

In Germany the 2016 vintage saw a rainy first half and then nearly ideal weather for the remainder. August brought warm temperatures encouraging good ripeness levels and fall allowed for long leisurely harvesting with cool nights that crystallized the wines' wonderful clarity of fruit.

The Spätlese has a bright, driving profile of citrus, minerals and orchard fruits. It's long, precise and has deep textured complexity. The pointed finesse and clarity are really impressive.

You don't have to look any further to witness the indisputable nobility of Egon Müller than the 2016 Spätlese. The wine is the total package and one that will astonish in the decades to come.
