James Suckling, 94 Points 

"Very youthful, cool and pristine, this is an extremely elegant sleek and focused Kabinett. Although analytically there must be quite a bit of unfermented grape sweetness here, you barely feel it, so uplifting is the mineral freshness that drives this joyful Saar riesling. Very long finish. Drink or hold." 

Vinous, 93 Points 

"The “regular” 2020 Riesling Scharzhofberger Kabinett (bearing A.P. #3) leads with quince and peach accented by mint, cress, ginger and lemon, setting up an overall impression of coolness, but also of brightness, with stimulating cut and pungency analogous to that of the corresponding Braune Kupp,  In the background is a greenhouse-like amalgam of flowers and foliage.  The phenolic concentration here belies a vintage with relatively generous yields even as the efficacious acidity and levity defy preconceptions concerning a year marked by summer heat and drought.  The multifaceted finish, transparent to wet stone underpinnings, is tongue-tinglingly vibrant.  Here is a Riesling Kabinett to really grab and hold your attention even as it delivers consummate refreshment and bit of thought-provoking intrigue to accompany its entertainment value."  

Winemaker Notes: 

"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." 

Alcohol: 9%
