World-Conquering Riesling from Egon Müller

Nick Jackson, MW Consultant | January 18, 2023

The magnificent Scharzhofberg vineyard is the source of one of the world's great white wines: Egon Müller's Riesling. This ancient vineyard, likely dating back to Roman times, is in the Saar subregion of the Mosel valley. Facing south, with old vines on steep slate slopes, all the elements are present for Riesling greatness.

Müller does not disappoint. The combination of low alcohol, a light body and an intense concentration that characterise the best German Rieslings is here in abundance. Furthermore, there is an intense minerality and spiciness that sets these dazzling wines apart.

Müller produces the full range of off-dry Rieslings, from Kabinett to Auslese, showcasing the versatility of the site and the variety. We are pleased to offer a range of vintages, all of which can be drunk with pleasure today. But note, too, that these are some of the world's most long-lived whites, developing over the years ever greater beauty and complexity.
