"Stunning focus" -
2015 Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Spätlese Magnum

Posted by Joe Salamone

Egon Müller's 2015s are some of the best that we've seen from him in decades.

Today, I'm happy to offer a very small parcel of 2015 Spätlese in magnum.

Two weeks ago, we offered 750s of Egon Müller's 2015 Spätlese and they sold out quickly.

I have little doubt that these magnums will disappear.

For Müller fans, the 2015 Scharzhofberger Spätlese is not to be missed.

The 2015 Spätlese is the total package. It's long, brilliantly precise and amazingly elegant. The 2015s are lifted, cooly mineral and razor cut. Müller amazes in the way that he's able to combine walk-on-tip-toe finesse with incredible intensity.

Müller ages beautifully. Every year at Rieslingfeier old Müllers steal the show. We strongly suggest cellaring magnums of the 2015 Spätlese for a few decades. The magnum format is perfect for allowing Riesling to age in all its purity and precision.

2015 Muller Scharzhofberger Spätlese

John Gilman, View from the Cellar: "The Scharzhofberger Spätlese that we tasted was also absolutely superb on both the nose and palate. The bouquet offers up a cool and classy constellation of apple,. pear, lime zest, a gorgeous base of slate and a potpourri of very gentle floral tones in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and feline in personality, with a fine core, ripe, seamless acids and stunning focus and grip on the poised, pure and perfectly balanced finish. This wine isvery, very long and still quite primary and in need of a bit of cellaring to really blossom."
