"The combination of intensity, precision, and utter zesty-fruity balance is simply to die for"

By all accounts, Müller's 2021 Scharzhofberger Auslese is jaw-droppingly amazing.

The wines are simply that good. No wines on earth offer the thrilling contrast between intensity and dancing, intricate delicacy. The wines can haunt you for days.

His upper prädikat wines (Auslese and above) boast a grandness of scale and ultra-refined complexity that places them squarely among the world's great wines. We have no hesitation including these with the best white Burgundies.

There's no doubt that Müller has the magic touch. However, even knowing this, the 2021s are mind-blowing. As usual, the Auslese is one of the absolute high points. Expect all the energy, tension, and detail that make Müller so thrilling with length and racy finesse.

No producer in Germany has the track record that Müller does. The number of mind-blowing bottles that he's supplied us with is simply crazy. All indications point to the 2021 Scharzhofberger Auslese being a legend for decades to come. I'm happy to have an opportunity to offer this again.

Mosel Fine Wines:

The 2021er Scharzhofberger Riesling Auslese is a sweet wine made from botrytized fruit. It proves still rather reduced and needs a few minutes in the glass to reveal a stunningly clean nose of fresh orchard fruits, a hint of pineapple, and glorious notes of minty herbs and spices. The wine is still a touch firm on the zingy and incredibly playful palate and leaves a stunning note of fresh fruits and proves full of finesse. The combination of intensity, precision, and utter zesty-fruity balance is simply to die for. This is clearly a modern-day classic in the making.
