    "This is a complex, mineral and grippy Scharzhofberger with great elegance, length and finesse." ~ Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate

    Just rated by Parker's Wine Advocate, a delicious Riesling just in time for our climbing temperatures. The Von Hovel Scharzhofberger Kabinett Riesling. The Kabinett is a dry to off-dry Riesling, and this one is perfect for smoked salmon, caviar, oysters, seafood, salads, vegetarian fare and more. The minerality of this wine is great with an aged chevre cheese too. The spectacular floral notes work beautifully with like flavors - think ginger. Steamed, whole fish prepared with soy sauce, ginger and scallions is a must. Or, just have a glass by itself; you'll be glad you did. It's a terrific value, so there's that too.

    Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate:  "The 2015 Scharzhofberger Riesling Kabinett is clear, fresh and discreet, but very fine and elegant on the bright yet deep, flinty and floral-flavored nose. Round, ripe and lush, but with the typical Saar piquancy and precision, this is a complex, mineral and grippy Scharzhofberger with great elegance, length and finesse. Very long and extremely stimulating, this an expressive terroir wine with 7.5% alcohol and 46 grams of residual sugar. A picture-book Kabinett.

    The range of the Scharzhofeberger Rieslings is impressive (try the Kabinett to get inspired) and the Hütte Spätlese is absolutely gorgeous." Apr 2017

    Trade Notes:  "Ripe, intense and forward, showing typical smoky notes and very fine fruit. There is some delicacy too, and a long intense finish. Drink 2017 - 2032."
