Egon Muller Scharzhof Riesling 2011

32389The Müller family own just 7 hectares in the famous Scharzhofberg vineyard in Wiltingen, which lies on the River Saar, not far from where it drains into the Mosel, just downstream from Saarburg. The family exploit their single vineyard holding to the full, and consequently are ranked among the region’s top wine producers. The estate has been in the hands of the Müller family since the late 18th century. The Scharzhofberg vineyard is typically well drained slate, and the section owned by the Müllers is dominated by Riesling, with just a small area planted up with other varieties. This is a reserved riesling, but is clearly refined, pure and minerally. There is a good balanced between fruit and acidity, as well as a hint of sweetness.
