Von Hövel, Oberemmeler Hütte Riesling Auslese Saar 1999

Imported by Rudi Weist and Cellars International, San Marcos CA.

This is AP: 03 00.

The neon glow of the Saar, from ancient, ungrafted vines in the sirloin part of the Hütte. Smells like wintergreen and facial scrub. A rapture of yellow peach and layered tropicality, low-acid on the front, then higher in back, reaching with energy and drive to finish the wine in elegance. This is drinking great right now.
