The 2015 Scharzhofberger Riesling Kabinett is clear, fresh and discreet, but very fine and elegant on the bright yet deep, flinty and floral-flavored nose. Round, ripe and lush, but with the typical Saar piquancy and precision, this is a complex, mineral and grippy Scharzhofberger with great elegance, length and finesse. Very long and extremely stimulating, this an expressive terroir wine with 7.5% alcohol and 46 grams of residual sugar. A picture-book Kabinett.
