von Othegraven

The Winery Of The 2008 Vintage is…. Wow, von Othegraven.

For an ethereal collection of quintessential Saar wines that haunted me for days, and from which I recovered wine memories of my earliest days when every sip of such a thing was miraculous. But this was a hard choice, because there were two runners-up who were objectively as good. Othegraven’s wines take me back to a kind of pre-cognitive state I remember when I first tasted great Saar Riesling: How on earth can this thing BE? I know they’re expensive and misaligned with the market, but if you have room for a splurge, make it this one.
