No matter how ripe the vintage in Germany, I can always count on the wines of the Saar to deliver some of those cool, green fruit flavors I love so much. This kabinett delivers that as well, but in a tropical vein. It's loaded with green mango aromas, and even goes so far as ripe papaya, but then the lime and green apple elements kick in and carry the wine through the mid palate and to a mineral infused finish. The balance is pure kabinett, with the acidity meshing with the sweetness to render the wine barely off dry and with a completely dry finish. It's lip-smacking and bracing, two very rare qualities in the 2007 vintage. This is a real "wow" wine, but that is what one expects from Egon Muller.

(Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Riesling Kabinett) This wine immediately displays an extra dimension in comparison to the estate Riesling. It has a beautiful presence on the palate, with again a fabulously precise acidity. It is pure, minerally, slatey even, with a great, light and lifted style. A brilliantly composed wine.
