2015 Von Hovel Saar Riesling Kabinett
Finally! TopTier German Riesling is here! From Joshua London: Weingut von Hövel, Saar Riesling, Kabinett, 2015 (11% abv; $40): exhibits a powerful, ripe, smoky, flinty, slate nose, with under-ripe stone fruits, honeysuckle, tart apples, and herbs. The aromatic intensity is matched on the elegant, rich, and rounded palate by crunchy, mineral infused stone fruits, green apples, a little spice, some tropical fruit juices, and all balanced by a tangy, persistent acidity, and just enough sweetness to maintain a beautiful tension throughout. This is fabulous! Drinking well now, it’ll start to show its best in another 4 years, and then should mature nicely for another 10-15 years after that, perhaps longer.
Very Limited! Do not wait!
