92 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"From old plots taken from Prinz Salm in 2012, the 2015 Binger Scharlachberg Riesling Spatlese offers a lovely, intense, elegant, refined and flinty-flavored bouquet with spicy notes and some grapefruit aromas. With a few botrytised grapes, and fermented partly in Stück (70%) and partly in stainless steel, this is a full-bodied, fresh and well-structured Scharlachberg Spatlese. It has a lush sweetness and a racy-piquant acidity that leads to a salty, well-structured finish with grip and aging potential. Keep it at least for five years and enjoy over 20 years."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Site: Binger Scharlachberg Rheinhessen – quartz and red sandstone/red slate – The name means scarlet hill, planted in terraced sections rather than straight slopes. Just across the Nahe to the east of Münster, this vineyard is technically in the Rhienhessen in its far northwest boundary.
