"At their best, they remind us of 2001, but subtler and deeper." - 2019 Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Spätlese

Posted by Joe Salamone

We wanted to kick off our 2019 German offerings in a big way.

There's no expression of Riesling quite like Müller's Scharzhofberger. It offers intensity without weight; a steely nobility that's breathtaking.

They are some of the most riveting wines on the planet.

Today, we're very happy to offer Egon Müller's 2019 Scharzhofberger Spätlese for $199.95 per bottle and $189.95 in 4-packs. 

The 2019 Scharzhofberger Spätlese seems destined to become a legend. The best that the 2019 vintage has to offer seems to be very special. As Jean Fisch and David Rayer write in Mosel Fine Wine: "The wines have incredible precision, play, zest, and structure. At their best, they remind us of 2001, but subtler and deeper."

The vintage is most well-known for the incredibly high temperatures during the summer. The entire vintage was a roller coaster: there were late frosts and rain at harvest. However, when everything came together, the vintage produced some extraordinary wines. 

You can expect the 2019 Scharzhofberger Spätlese to be brilliantly pure, tense, and rich, but beautifully proportioned and detailed. It's a compelling total package. 

Scharzhofberger is one of the world's great wines. The 2019 Spätlese is poised to be a monument to the heights that the wine can reach for decades to come. Sadly, yields were down in 2019, and interest is very high. It's best to get your orders in early.
