Originating in Roman times, Scharzhofberg is the most famous vineyard in Germany. 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 metres 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. No other wine in the world can match this Kabinett for precision, penetration, elegance and splendour. Extremely complex nose of apple, dried apricot, citrus and stone fruits. The palate is invigorating with its intensity, every sip providing fresh nuances previously unseen.
