Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Emrich Schönleber, Fruhlingsplatzchen, Riesling, Grosses Gewächs, 2020

Sparkling yellow fruits with peach and apricot, lemon-thyme, heather and rock salt. Powerful but crystalline and elegant with spices gradually unfurling. Hints of iron and pressed flowers. Both powerful and elegant at the same time. The Frühlingsplätzchen displays amazing inner tension and a fine haunting length. As always, in fact. Grown up but also inviting. Produced from 30 year old vines, fermented naturally and raised in traditional German casks. A red slate and gravel dominated site facing southwest to southeast

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.
