No fewer than 606 times were German wines of the 2008 vintage awarded 90+ points in Robert Parker’s current vintage appraisal in his newsletter Wine Advocate. A 2008 Scharzhofberger Riesling Auslese Goldkapsel from Weingut Egon Müller-Scharzhof (Saar Valley of the Mosel region) even fetched 98 of a possible 100 points, possibly elevating it to cult status.

Riesling and Pinot Noir, Germany’s dream team ! Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate has been one of the world’s most influential wine publications for years. Parker himself has frequently been proclaimed a “wine pope” and the most influential person within the international wine scene, since the wines he rates highly fetch high prices worldwide and are top bets on the shelves of wine merchants and wine lists of restaurateurs.

96 out of 100 points
The German wine expert in his team, David Schildknecht, visited some 101 German wine estates last year and tasted several thousand wines. His enthusiasm for vintage 2008 is reflected in the truly extraordinary number of high ratings he awarded the wines. Some 41 received 95 or more points, 20 of which were from the Mosel region alone.
