2001 Von Hövel Oberemmeler Hütte Riesling Spätlese

The best spatlese I have ever had, dwarfing even the J.J. Prum from the same vintage. A buzz saw of gorge water and river rocks only amplifies the unfolding layers of fruit and spice. Caramel apple and lemon curd melt into a finish that then delivers a gorgeous, clear note of macadamia nut cookie. This is like a spat that robs from the best of kab, spat, and auslesen. (E.D.)
