Egon Muller Scharzhofberger Kabinett 1998
Although it’s 2011, 10+ years older than the vintage, the color still shows young and in medium blond.
Orange, pineapple, vanilla, apricot and light honey, with hints of aged oxidized noses, like roasted almond or aged wood case. With the raise of temperature, shows some bouquet and mineral.
The palate contains rich flavors of tangerine, orange, bouquet, gravel note, honey note, light spicy white pepper note, and pickled prune. The high acidity is very crisp, enriches saliva, and is very lingering with the citrus flavors.

Similar color, but a bit lighter than Kabinett.
Distinctly pronounced noses of honey, peach and bouquet of acacia. With sunkiss juice (well, sweet orange), patient fruit and pineapple hints. Still shows young nose.
Honey, bouquet, patient fruit, muskmelon, peach and lemon flavors explode in the mouth. Beneath mineral goes with the smooth, high and crisp acidity. Very lingering and very outstanding.
