    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Emrich Schönleber, Monzinger, Riesling, Kabinett, 2013

    A Kabinett of effortless balance and wonderful lively red apple and tangerine fruit. Whilst possessing as much sugar as just about any of their previous Kabinetts, the acidity here is such that the finish comes across seemingly dry. A hugely moreish and focussed Kabinett of great freshness.

    David Schildknecht, Vinous
    This wine’s 10% alcohol is a tip-off not just to its modest level of residual sugar but also to the extreme ripeness of the 2018 vintage, which, as Schönleber acknowledged, represented a challenge to the Kabinett genre. It was picked in the last days of September. It manages in fact to display more than enough delicacy and refreshment to justify its labeling. Lightly poached white peach mingles alluringly with lemon cream on both the nose and the polished palate. Lime and grapefruit add juiciness to a sustained finish that manages to sooth and stimulate, not to mention refresh.

    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.
