von Hövel 2017 Hütte Riesling Spätlese “Monopol Lage”
The spätlese has the classic pink grapefruit Saar signature laced with savory herbs like mint, tarragon and fennel fronds. It also has a compelling umami element replete with dashi and seaweed aromatics. 80% was fermented in stainless steel, 20% in neutral oak. It’s long and juicy and completely satisfying.
