Riesling Dessert Wine – a noble sweet taste profile
The Scharzhofberg is the legendary slate layer on the Saar and the Scharzhofberger is one of the most famous wines in Germany, a legend with a worldwide reputation. In 1895, the Wiltinger Dean Christoph Schauffler wrote about the location: “Out of all the wine locations around Trier, the King made the Wiltinger Scharzhofberg, his seat.
Unfortunately, because of its high value, only a few mortals are granted this fragrant blood of the vine to love.”
Our noble sweet dessert wines from this location are not only absolutely inspiring but royally presented too: (quote)... with a spectacularly, fantastic rich and extraordinarily seductive, erotic fruit as well as an downright insane minerality. The Wine Advocate honored this sensational quality in the 2011 vintage with 100 Parker points for the dessert wine.
