Fantastic wine right now. Paired great with spicy Viet food. Out classed a GC Chablis and out did a '07 Suidurat that followed it up with some Stilton. The Spatlese was sweet, crisp acidity with so many well rounded apple, pear, white peach with white florals exhibited on the nose. The fruits and stony mineral made for a great mouthfeel and a long finish. Sadly this was my last bottle but so good.

(Von Hovel Oberemeller Hutte Spatlese) I preferred this a hair over the 2005 for it's racy, lean, linear style and crisper acids. No botrytis on this one but just a structured and classic Saar Spatlese. Loved it. Cellar this and drink the 2005 as it is an opulent sex bomb right now.
(Von Hövel Oberemmeler Hütte Riesling Spätlese) Wonderful character and purity here, bright fruit, plenty of finesse, great direction and poise. Forceful fruit, very firm style, rocky flavour with a firm acid backbone. This has a bright composition with lots of potential. Truly excellent wine.
