Scharzhofberger Riesling Kabinett 2011

75 cl

This is by far the most famous and internationally renowned vineyard site on the Mosel combining elegance and a vast spectrum of aromas. On mainly south-facing slopes, grapes ripen from light Kabinett vines to Trockenbeerenausleese quality on heavily weathered grey slate. In every dimension this Kabinett is fascinating! It presents itself with aromas of tangerine, lime, honey, white blossom and a dense yet playful structure and mouth feel.
