Utter Brilliance:
2020 Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Spätlese

Posted by Joe Salamone

Scharzhofberger is one of the world's great wines.

It's hard not to be in awe of Egon Müller. From his Scharzhofberg vineyard, Müller crafts the most consistently magical Rieslings on the planet.

No one manages to combine intensity and a seemingly miraculous weightlessness the way that Müller does. In any vintage, the Scharzhofberger Spätlese is particularly noteworthy for its gripping presence, detail, and poise.

We're very excited to offer Müller 2020 Scharzhofberger Spätlese. We expect this to be a show-stopping bottle. The 2020s that we've tasted from the Mosel and the Saar show an amazing interplay of density and steely verve. The wines combine a tactile mineral presence with cool-toned fruits and beautiful freshness. It's very easy to see Müller producing an incredible Scharzhofberger Spätlese in this vintage. 

I'll wrap this up. Müller's brilliance is well known and in recent vintages, it's become very difficult to find the wines in quantity. I'm happy to offer this modest parcel, but be warned that we're expecting a quick sell out.
