Scharzhofberger 'P' Pergentsknopp' Riesling Grosses Gewachs 2019 - Van Volxem

Tasting notes

"From the Pergentsknopp, the 2019 Scharzhofberger P Riesling GG opens very intense and flinty on the lemon-scented nose, and it is even more straight and challenging than the generic Scharzhofberger, with lemon leaf aromas and vulnerable stony aromas of wet crushed slate and quartzite. Piquant and fresh on the palate, this is a lean, tight, dry, grippy and persistently salty but also dense and juicy Pergentsknopp that lacks a couple of years of bottle age to shine fully bright, but this is melting pot with loads of perfectly ripe Riesling grapes. The acidity is fresh and piquant yet ripe, and the textural composition is still more edgy and rough compared to the generic Scharzhofberger. However, this makes the 2019 a tight and tensioned, very fresh and even juicy "P" whose true potential will be revealed only in 5-10 years from now. The finish, however, is spectacularly long, refined, juicy and very intense."

Vineyards were originally planted by the Romans in the third century. In the 11th century, monks rediscovered the vineyards before they became part of a monastery winery under the Jesuit order in the 17th century. Latterly, the winery was run by the estates namesake, the Van Volxem family, before Roman Niewodniczanski took over the winery in 2000.

The wines of the Saar are given their character by the mineral-rich, fertile slate soils and the prevailing cool climate. Harvesting happens by hand, with conscientious selection guaranteeing consistently high quality. Largely rootless vines have been perched on the great sites for many decade
