Tasting Notes


ABV:
8.5 %

Notes

One of the few Auslesen this year, the Halenberg has a handsome intensity which carries its seamless sweetness with great ease. Ripe melon, apricot, mango and quince slim down through to a narrow, very slate-transparent, saline finish. Frank’s philosophy on Auslese is that “I like to have a certain amount of botrytis in Auslese when I can, but I never want any in my Spätlese”.

Notes
The 2022 Riesling Monzinger Halenberg Auslese opens with flickers of tangerine on the nose, enticing and aromatic. Just a touch of botrytis makes itself felt with a subtle honey and candied lemon peel lift. The palate is more viscous and has a lovely notion of ripe lemon zest, intense and candied. It radiates with freshness and citrus aromas, honing in on its core with focus and deliberation. Beautiful, pure, lemon-intense sweetness shines. For Schönleber, the presence of botrytis is the difference between Spätlese and Auslese. Making Auslese in 2022 meant looking for the little botrytis in the Halenberg. (Sweet)

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.
