2009 produced tons of great Auslese. This is particularly true in the Saar, where the better wines can be particularly zestful. The von Hövel estate has established itself as a household name when it comes to produce such wines and this Auslese is a joy to drink.

Scharzhofberger Riesling Auslese

05 10


Wow, this is a nice wine! Harvested from the oldest vines in the Scharzhofberger, at the top of the hill, this Auslese offers an ultra-pure and classy nose with smoke, mineral, lily flower, white peach and mint. The strikingly elegant and refined texture on the palate reminds one of the feine Auslese bottlings of the old days, with a sappy and extra-long finish. This is racy and very impressive. 2016-2039
