Wine Enthusiast 89 points - Hints of crushed wet stones lend intense minerality to zesty lemon-lime and floral aromas on the nose. It’s just a shade off dry in style, with elegant stone fruit flavors and nervous acidity that ripples on the palate. (Dec 2013)
Scharzhofberg is one of the most famous vineyard sites in Germany, likely to have originally been planted by the Romans. Situated in Wiltingen, removed from the Saar in a side valley and facing south, its slopes are quite steep, with a 30–60% grade, and high, at 180-280 meters elevation. Formed from grey Devonian slate, the soils are very deep with no bedrock. This wine is always delicate, crisp and exquisite on the palate.
