Notes

Cool white flowers, aromatic cracked herbs, freshly mown grass and lemon zest are just some of the brilliant flavours that come tumbling from the glass like a collection of flawless diamonds – this is a wine of supreme aromatic elegance and precision. On the palate there's a discreet note of oyster shell and salt to balance out the intense citrus and crisply salted peach notes in this glorious GG built on discretion and whispered length. Brilliant.

Notes
In describing this bottling’s 2016 predecessor I led with the following: “Even more effusively floral than its Frühtau counterpart, this offers iris, violets and lily-of-the-valley.” That description holds as well for this 2017, where those characteristics also translate into musky, bittersweet inner-mouth perfumes. There are the lusciously juicy white peach and subtly green, clover-chomping counterpoint familiar from this year’s “Frühtau,” now in the context of enhanced textural refinement and buoyancy. Along with finishing salinity comes a complex, mouthwatering meaty-nutty-mineral savor akin to mussel stock.

Emrich Schönleber

Emrich Schönleber

A great Nahe estate that was started by Werner Schönleber in the 1960s with just two hectares. Today the estate comprises 14 hectares, mainly Riesling, on the slate and quartzite soils of the Halenberg and Frühlingsplatzchen vineyards. Intense vineyard work and spontaneous fermentation in old oak casks together with ageing in steel vat conspire to produce intense, long lived Nahe Riesling that combines floral, charming qualitites with intense minerality. For the last five years, this estate has been perfoming to is maximum, rivalling Germany’s very greatest producers.
