ABV:
12 %

Notes

Far more mineral than Lenz, with complex, open slate and smoke aromas surrounding layers of pithy, salty fruit – borne across the palate by an invisible freshness. Utter silk and charm in a beautifully dry package.

Notes
As usual, this bottling – which in the present instance leans heavily on young vines not only in Halenberg but in Auf der Lay as well – not only lives up to its name but also offers excellent price-quality rapport. Penetrating, high-toned aromas of red raspberry, lime and white peach are mingled with struck flint and marine breeze anticipations of the reductive tension, stone suffusion, and mouthwatering salinity that follow on an infectiously juicy, satiny palate. And like its “basic” (intro-level) counterpart, this bottling boasts a striking sense of meatiness, not just clam-like in its mingling with mineral elements but also savory in a manner reminiscent of chicken stock, thereby reinforcing a resemblance to Chablis. The bell-clear finish vibrates and tugs at the salivary glands even as it delivers consummate refreshment.

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.
