The “regular” 2020 Riesling Scharzhofberger Kabinett (bearing A.P. #3) leads with quince and peach accented by mint, cress, ginger and lemon, setting up an overall impression of coolness, but also of brightness, with stimulating cut and pungency analogous to that of the corresponding Braune Kupp. In the background is a greenhouse-like amalgam of flowers and foliage. The phenolic concentration here belies a vintage with relatively generous yields even as the efficacious acidity and levity defy preconceptions concerning a year marked by summer heat and drought. The multifaceted finish, transparent to wet stone underpinnings, is tongue-tinglingly vibrant. Here is a Riesling Kabinett to really grab and hold your attention even as it delivers consummate refreshment and a bit of thought-provoking intrigue to accompany its entertainment value.

Kumquat Kombucha. New age orange wine. Weird and won’t be for everyone but always fun to have these for easy drinking sake. Orange zest and rice wine vinegar on nose. Notes of kumquat and yuzu with funky yeasty fermentation. Unfiltered. — 17 days ago

Skin contact Müller Thurgau Sauvignon Blanc Blend aged in Amphorae.
Cloudy, zesty, salty, fresh. Apricots & underripe mango, salty rocks, a hint of hay.
On the palate lively, zingy, fresh. A bit spicy, with nice purity and a wild edge to it.
Brilliant with food but also v. nice solo. — a month ago
Apple seed and apple wood accents lend decisive counterpoint on both nose and palate to the 2020 Riesling Scharzhof’s dominant, crunchy apple and zesty lemon fruit. Suggestions of apple blossom hover throughout. The feel is firm, and the lingering finish offers refreshment as well as stimulating cut and piquancy. (The source vineyards for this large cuvée are once again largely Saarburger Rausch, Wiltinger Braunfels and Oberemmeler Rosenberg.) (David Schildknecht, Vinous, May 2022)
