With critics talking about Germany 2015 being the “vintage of the century”, it is exciting to see these wines starting to arrive on the market… We are therefore pleased to offer the excellent value Von Hövel Saar Riesling Kabinett 2015.
This wine finished second in the Berlin Kabinett Cup. It is worth noting that the UK allocation of the winning wine - Max Ferd. Richter's Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett 2015 - sold out through FINE+RARE almost immediately.
According to Berlin Kabinett Cup organiser Martin Zwick: “Von Hövel has been on the up for the last few years.” Mosel expert and Berlin Kabinett Cup judge Lars Carlberg: “couldn’t believe it really placed second” above such heavyweights as Egon Müller, Dr Loosen and Willi Schaefer. And finally Mosel Fine Wines, an independent review of Mosel Riesling, awarded it 91 points and described it as “elegant and superbly spicy… and a huge success for a mere Estate wine.”
After a visit from Max von Kunow to our office, the FINE+RARE team tasted the Von Hövel Saar Riesling Kabinett 2015, which hails from “long-forgotten grand cru sites of the Saar”, and can confirm that the quality is outstanding.
Winemaker Max von Kunow told us that 2015 is “a great vintage for Germany, especially Mosel and especially for Kabinett and Spätlese.” He compares it to 1971 (Wine Advocate’s highest-ever scoring German vintage), saying that it is even “better than 2001.”
Fans of Mosel Kabinett would also be wise to consider Von Hövel Scharzhofberger Riesling Kabinett 2015, which also finished high in the Berlin Kabinett Cup and was awarded 92 points by Mosel Fine Wines.
