Notes

Sparkling and charming, the 2021 feels attractively open in style today, being hugely detailed and precise, with a haunting citrus and slate rich spice bringing everything together. Some grip to the finish speaks to ageability but this is overall a highly sophisticated dry Riesling that gives more each time you go back to it. 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

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.
