Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Spatlese Riesling

The balance of acidity is the secret of all truly great sweet wines, and this medium sweet Mosel style from Egon Müller is a benchmark example, its profound backbone of razor-sharp acidity drawing its finish on a knife-edge of linear persistence. Outstanding line and length bring focus and definition to lime, clove, baked apple and cane sugar flavours. Impeccably balanced – the signature of a master. $160 at Emporium and Edinburgh Cellars.
