von Hövel 2019 Scharzhofberg Riesling Kabinett
von Hövel holds 2.8 hectares of vines in the famed Wiltingen vineyard of Scharzhofberg, making them one of only 5 ‘significant’ landowners at this site. Max von Kunow farms this vineyard with a focus on expressing the more “salty, mineral style” of Scharzhofberg, with modest residual sugars and pointed acidity, typically framed by spice ripe fruit. The wine is fermented with native yeasts and aged in stainless steel with 20% neutral barrique in 2018.
