The 2016 Scharzhofberger Spätlese has a clear and smoky/stony bouquet as well as a very delicate, bright and ripe (yet botrytis-free) Riesling aroma with floral and almost peppery slatey notes—fascinating! Mouth-fillingly lush and piquant on the palate, with beautifully generous, round and elegant fruit, remarkable intensity and length, this is a gorgeous Scharzhofberger made to drink for ages. Don’t drink before 2030, and don’t die before 2060. Tasted March 2018. - Stephan Reinhardt

While its stony mineral nose is quiet, there's such a kaleidoscope of fruit, earth and floral complexity to be revealed here. Electric-lime acidity is the backdrop to punchy sweet-tart green apple, grapefruit and honeysuckle on the palate. Light footed and filigreed, it finishes with reverberations of salt and grapefruit pith. Better to hold till 2021 but enjoy for decades to come.

Wine Spectator, January 2018
This is impressively complex and harmonious, with prominent notes of saffron and jasmine framing the core of ripe honeydew melon and nectarine. Drink now through 2038. — A.Z.
