2009 Emrich Schonleber Monzinger Halenberg Riesling "R"

Merchant Reviews
In 1834 the German viticulturist Johan Philipp Bronner published his book, Viniculture in the Provinces of Rheinhessen, the Nahe Valley and the Mosel Valley. About the town of Monzigen he wrote: “The meagre conditions on the Monzinger hill seem, in themselves, to be the cause of the good reputation of the wines, which are, as a result, so high in price and among the best in the Nahe region.” Werner Schönleber believes the Halenberg to be the finer of his two Großes Gewächs (grands crus). The red slate gives leaner, more crystalline wines than the sandier Frühlingsplätzchen, where the wines are marked by the smell of ripe white peaches.
