Tasting Note:

Emrich-Schonleber's dry wines have an enormous reputation amongst German wine afficionados. None more so than the elusive Auf der Ley. Registered as its own Grosse Lage as of 2014, Auf der Ley comprises two parcels of vines averaging thirty and sixty years old respectively, situated in the uppermost corner of the great Halenberg vineyard at 50% gradient.
