This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

Egon Müller TBA and more

Wine dinner featuring the wines of Egon Müller at One Harbour Road, with Egon Müller IV in attendance.

2015 Kanta Riesling Balhannah Vineyard - dryish with polyurethane notes.

2012 Château Belá Riesling - much sweeter, thicker on the tongue.  More floral.

2018 Egon Müller Scharzhof Riesling - very crisp and refreshing.  Definitely flinty, with a hint of ripeness.  Good acidity balance.

2018 Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Kabinett, from 6L - too cold at first, but definitely white flowers.  Lovely sweetness and ripeness, and so fragrant in the mouth.  Wonderful flint and mineral notes.

2018 Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Spätlese - more fragrant and elegant.  Obviously sweeter than the kabinett.  Still polyurethane and flint, with white flowers.  Rounder on the palate.

2018 Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Auslese - leaner, more depth on the palate, with a higher sweetness level but also a little bitterness.

2007 Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Trockenbeerenauslese - the family reserve that is not commercially released.  Really, really viscous... just rolling it around the tongue in the mouth didn't seem release enough saliva to dilute it.  Lots of sugar here but also a strong dose of acidity at the same time.  Definitely marmalade, candied kumquat, and orange blossom water.
