"Bottled earlier than its stable mates, the Muller 2008 Scharzhofberger Riesling Kabinett A.P. #3 smells of sea breezes and shrimp shell reduction in a manner that accentuates the already mineral thrust of the corresponding A.P. #6. Nor is a classic wet stone suggestion missing here either. Muller thinks the measurably remarkably high dry extract levels of the 2008s have some significance in terms of flavor, and it's certainly hard to deny that this Kabinett - while delicate, invigorating, and supremely refreshing - also seems as though you could strain it through your teeth and come up with a shimmering mineral residue. Furthermore, something other than residual sugar is manifestly buffering out and balancing the high acidity. don't look for charm here, and above all not for the laid-back, soothing side 2008 can sometimes show. This wine will stiffen your spine even as it invigorates your palate and challenges your imagination. I'd plan to follow some for at least a dozen years." - David Schildknecht, robertparker.com (Feb 26, 2010)
