Der 2005 Scharzhofberger Riesling Kabinett Egon Müller zeigt sich mit heller, goldgelber Farbe im Glas. Aromen frischer Aprikose und Pfirsich bieten sich der Nase. Cremig mit dichter Textur wirkt die Frucht am Gaumen, die prägnante Säure sorgt für frischen Geschmack.

The Muller 2005 Scharzhofberger Riesling Kabinett A.P. #2 displays lovely clover, apple, and nut oil aromatics. In the mouth, this is juicy and refreshing, with ripe peach and baked apple underlain by nut oils and laced with bitter-sweet quinine and floral notes. The overall impression is of clarity and delicacy, with a finish that is impressively persistent while remaining restrained in intensity, with an understated complexity of fruits, nuts, flowers, and slate.

Muller’s 2005 Scharzhofberger Riesling Spatlese A.P. #4 offers aromas and flavors of lightly poached peach with a subtly spicy, pungent and honeyed overlay of noble rot. Its impression on the palate is dense and overtly slatey, with fresh peach and apple, subtle notes of honey and white raisin, all of which inform a pure, lingering finish. Also recommended: 2005 Riesling “Scharzhof” ($ unknown; 86).

Muller’s 2005 Scharzhofberger Riesling Auslese A.P. #6 smells sweetly of pear nectar, quince jelly, and gardenia. Refined in flavors and satiny in texture, it combines a relative softness of ripe acids with a near weightless impression. After the dramatic minerality, nooks and crannies of flavor, and overall intensity exhibited by this year’s auction Spatlese, one has to recalibrate to appreciate the gentle virtues of this Auslese #6, but the orchard fruit and floral flavors here go on and on, and I would bet on the wine’s taking on further complexity while preserving its distinctive balance over at least a 20-year period.
