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.
Apple blossom, nut oil and sweet herbs on the nose. Supple apricot pit flavor on the palate, with a nice balance of sweetness and acidity. The elegant finish shows persistent slatey minerality. This sumptuous kabinett is one of the finest of the vintage.
