About

95

"Savory aromas of cling peach, wild herbs and lemon peel. Luscious passion fruit and saline minerality form infinite layers on the palate. Densely packed, elegant and spicy on the dazzling finish, this is without doubt one of the three best dry rieslings of the vintage. Hats off!"

94 John Gilman - View from the Cellar

"The 2011 Halenberg Grosses Gewachs is also a very refined and elegant young Riesling. The deep, nascently complex and youthful nose delivers a mix of tart orange, pear, fresh herb tones, refined nuances of petrol, a complex base of slate, lime zest and a lovely, smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and classy, with a fine core of fruit, excellent focus and balance and a very long, seamless and elegant finish. A fine, fine bottle in the making. 2018-2040."

"The Schonlebers' 2011 Monzinger Halenberg Riesling Grosses Gewachs delivers a complex nose featuring alkaline, saline, stony, and faintly fusil mineral intimations along with green tea, citrus zests, greenhouse-like suggestions of foliage, and bittersweet, iris-like floral perfume. All of these elements - the perfume as if chomping on flowers - inform a rich, enveloping palate that nonetheless harbors a sense of tension and dynamic not detected in the more static corresponding Fruhlingsplatzchen. I suspect this will retain interest for considerably longer, but probably be best enjoyed within 10-12 years."
