Tasting Note
The 2020er Riesling Scharzhof is a fully off-dry wine made from Estate holdings in the Wiltinger Braunfels, Oberemmeler Rosenberg, and Saarburger Rausch. It offers a refined and subtly aromatic nose of herbs, yellow peach, apricot blossom, pear, lavender, floral elements, cassis, and whipped cream, all wrapped into some residual scents from the spontaneous fermentation. The wine proves delicately smooth and coats the palate with suave richness of yellow fruits. This fruity-smooth side then quickly gives way to a more focused and refreshing side in the long and well-delineated finish. The aftertaste is all about spices and citrusy fruits with just a light touch of richer flavors including apricot and pineapple. The 2020 rendition of the Scharzhof has the fruity side of traditional Kabinett wines at this Estate (also as the acid feeling is slightly lower) rather than the usual off-dry balance of recent years.
