Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Emrich Schönleber, Monzinger, Riesling, Kabinett, 2016

Freshly cut summer stone fruits, the zing of lime sorbet, clear honey, and tangerine - an easy going, approachable Kabinett of sunny disposition that hails from both Halenberg and Fruhlingsplatzen vineyards.

David Schildknecht, Vinous

Sourced as usual from the Frühlingsplätzchen, this leads with subtle yet seductive floral perfume suggestive of apple blossom and lily-of-the-valley. (A “place of spring,” indeed, this Frühlingsplätzchen!) Aromatic intimations of white peach, grapefruit and lime translate into luscious, juicy profusion on a polished palate. This finishes with a saliva-liberating suffusion of mineral salts accompanied by utmost transparency to stony, floral and coolingly green herbal nuances. Between ripeness of fruit and leaving behind only a modest level of residual sugar, this bottling reached 9.5% alcohol – high by prevailing Kabinett standards – but it certainly exhibits no lack of levity or animation, impressions accentuated by invigorating impingements of dissolved CO2.

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.
