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.
An extremely racy and vibrant Kabinett that packs a ton of character into its sleek frame. A rapier-like finish that flashes as it moves across the palate. Drink or hold. 93 Points, James Suckling (6/2018)
