Weingut Von Hövel

Oberemmeler Hütte "Feinherb"



FRESH & ELEGANT


A perfectly harmonious Mosel Riesling with a clean, cool and polished character with soft, ripe yellow fruits balanced by fine acidity and minerality. Residual sweetness 13.4 g / l is perfectly balanced by acid of 7.9 g./l. Only 12.5% alcohol.
* Feinherb is an unofficial term that describes a wine that seems half-dry in your mouth. The designation is quite popular with producers as, unlike the "halbtrocken", it is not bound by a certain residual sweetness level and better describes how the wine feels in practice.


FRISK & ELEGANT


En helt igennem harmonisk Mosel Riesling med en ren, kølig og poleret karakter med bløde, modne gule frugter balanceret af en fin syre og mineralitet. Restsødme 13,4 g/l afbalanceres perfekt af en syre på 7,9 g./l. Kun 12,5% alkohol. 

*Feinherb er en uofficiel betegnelse, der beskriver en vin, der virker halvtør i munden. Betegnelsen er ret populær blandt producenterne, da den, i modsætningen til ”halbtrocken”, ikke er bundet af et bestemt restsødmeniveau og bedre beskriver, hvordan vinen i praksis føles.

ABOUT THE WINERY


WEINGUT VON HOVEL


Von Hövel has been in the village of Oberemmel 200 m above the Wiltingen by the river since the 13th century. The property was originally a monk's regiment belonging to the monastery in Trier, but was privatized at the behest of Emperor Napoleon in 1806 and sold to Emmerich Grach; great-great-grandfather to Max Von Kunow, who runs the winery today. The mansion has been burnt and rebuilt a few times, but the basements are the same as it was 800 years ago. From Max's grandparents' time in the 1950s, the winery has been named Von Hövel, who came into the family when a forester married a daughter of the Grach family.


Von Hövel har siden 1200-tallet ligget i landsbyen Oberemmel 200 m. over Wiltingen ved floden, ca. 5 km. før Saar’s udløb i Mosel. Ejendommen var oprindeligt et munkerefugium, der tilhørte klosteret i Trier, men blev på foranledning af Kejser Napoleon privatiseret i 1806 og solgt til Emmerich Grach; tip-tipoldefar til Max Von Kunow, som driver vingården i dag. Den herskabelige ejendom har været brændt og genopført et par gange, men kældrene er de samme som for 800 år siden. Fra Max’ bedsteforældres tid i 1950’erne har vingården haft navnet Von Hövel, der kom ind i familien da en skovrider ægtede en datter af Grach familien.
