Egon Muller Scharzhofberger
New 2021 Releases
And Selected Back-Vintages

Muller's Scharzhofberg is Germany's finest and most highly-prized wine.
Comparisons are meaningless for a site so unique and in such an extreme position of climate and geography. Schazhofberg is on the edge of the vinous universe, at the absolute limit of feasibility, where grape-growing simply has to stop because it is just too bloody cold. When you get this far up the Mosel, to the Saar and to the Scharhofberg,it is like you are in the heart of darkness, you have found Kurtz. There are no more south-facing slopes beyond that are precipitous enough to ripen Riesling in the same way. And in this climate, if it isn't Riesling it's not worth growing.


2021: Magnificent Kabinett
The 2021 Growing Season was wet to the point of dramatic and deadly flooding throughout Germany. As a result, ripening was slow and late, but a long, dry autumn allowed flavor accumulation, where rot and disease did not intervene. The best sites in the Mosel were able to produce delightful and deep ripe flavors late-on in the  season at relatively light alcohol levels, favoring the trocken, feinherb and most particularly the kabinett designation.
Acid off the charts, balanced by ripe and intense flavors - the delayed ripening carried high acidity all the way through the season, never wavering, right up to harvest. A keen observer describes the vintage as 'great for the acid-heads; kabinetts are extraordinary!' Reviews of the top sites, from the top estates in the Mosel and Nahe, stress the density and power of the fruit, overlying immense structure.
