2017 Egon Muller Scharzhofberger Kabinett

Posted by Joe Salamone

No other wine on earth offers the combination of intensity and walk-on-tip-toe weightlessness.

Catching a bottle of Müller Kabinett in the zone is one of our most beloved wine experiences.

Everything from Müller's QbA to his Eiswein is absolutely stunning. Recently, though, we're obsessed with the Kabinett. The way that it manages intensity without weight makes it utterly and uniquely compelling.

Scharzhofberg and Egon Müller is one of the great marriages in all of wine. Scharzhofberg is a great site. Unlike many of Germany's top sites where potential ripeness is an important part of the equation, Scharzhofberg works on a different logic. The site produces wines with relatively low oechsle (ripeness) levels.

Scharzhofberger Kabinetts, in any vintage, thrives on steely finesse that's full of cut and mineral-drenched length that emphasizes the wine's nobility. The 2017 is blazingly pure and elegant. There's an unbelievable mineral cut.

For us, Scharzhofberger Kabinett is one of our favorite wines anywhere. Bottles with 20 or even 30 years of age have blown us away. Please keep in mind that whenever we offer Müller's Kabinett it disappears quickly.
