2020 Emrich-Schönleber Halenberg Riesling GG
All wines stored at 55° and 70% humidity
Emrich-Schönleber's Grosses Gewachs (GG) wines come from "Grand Cru" sites famed for their very steep inclines (70%). Halenberg sits on blue slate soils with quartz throughout and delivers the most precise and deep minerality.
"The 2020 Halenberg GG is pure precise and fresh on the nose that offers flinty notes of crushed stones herbs and lemons. Crystalline refined and juicy on the palate this is a dense and intense tightly structured and persistently salty Halenberg with fine tannins and great purity. Tasted from a bottle that was opened three days before the bouquet is deep and intense but pure and salty with ripe lemon and crushed stone aromas. The palate is full dense and tight with serious tannin structure and lingering salinity. The combination of both wines is amazing and combines purity and freshness with complexity and elegance."
