Von Hövel Oberemmeler Hütte Riesling Spätlese

Germany, Mosel

From the moment this wine was poured its aroma lifted from the glass – the wonderfully delicate yet vibrant nose of lime zest, white peach, ginger and slatey, mineral intensity – all matched on the palate in bucket loads! Totally pure and refined, the sweetness is in perfect harmony with the racy acidity – classical and exhilarating.”

Origin

The vineyard is just over 8 hectares in size and is made up of decomposed slate, which is essential to the very mineral character of the wine. The Hütte enclave is broadly recognised – along with Scharzhofberg – as the leading vineyard in the region. In addition, 2010 is rightly hailed as one of the greatest vintages in the last 20 years.

Grape Variety

100% Riesling.

The must is fermented in large old oak barrels, which allows for a prolonged and sensitive fermentation, without imparting any oak flavour or aroma. The wine then rests on its lees for a six month period.

Alcohol Percentage

8%

Cellar Potential

Drink now and over the next 10 years.

Producer

Founded in 1803 the present owners of the famous von Hövel estate are the von Künow family. All the vineyards are farmed to organic principles and only natural, indigenous yeasts are used in fermentation.

Food Match

A stylish aperitif, but will work really well with any Thai or Malaysian dish where the emphasis is on vegetables and/or fish/white meat including any ingredients such as lemon grass, ginger, coconut, lime leaves, star anise, coriander and mild chilli.
