2010 Emrich Schonleber Monzinger Halenberg Riesling Trocken

Merchant Reviews
Goethe once noted: "This time people were boasting of one of their local wines, called 'Monzinger.' They say it runs down the throat with such ease and pleasure, that you only realise its bewildering effect too late. The temptation to taste it and to measure ourselves with it was too great to resist." Since the 1960s, Werner (now joined by his son, Frank) Schönleber, has been reclaiming the tradition of fine wine in Monzingen, with his ambitious reclamation of the Frühlingsplätzchen and Halenberg vineyards, both of which are considered among the Grand Cru of Germany. The slate and clay soils of the Halenberg are perfectly reflected in this Riesling Kabinett. Hand-harvesting, low yields and pristine cellar conditions are hallmarks of Werner Schönleber, widely regarded to be one of Germany's best winemakers.
