Nahe Riesling Trocken, Weingut Emrich-Schonleber 2012

Pure, precise dry Riesling offering vivid fruit and mineral flavors. Aromas of white flowers, apricot, pear, and cut-grass with focused, precise, well-delinated layers of fruits and minerals. A real stunner in this vintage.

"The 2012 Estate Riesling Trocken is a beautiful wine that will very happily all be bottled under natural cork this year- despite requests from some importers for some of the wine to go under screwcaps the Schonleber family has not been happy with the evolution of a few previous vintages of this wine that they have kept in their cellars under screwcap and are convinced that the wines age better under cork. Needless to say, this is a sentiment I am in complete accord with and was very happy to hear of their courageous decision to place the quality of the wine's evolution above the desires of some of their importers! The wine is going to be lovely in 2012 (and a great value), as it offers up a fine and impressively complex bouquet of lime, pear, petrol, lovely slate underpinnings, a bit of smokiness and a gentle topnote of fresh botanicals. On the palate the wine is medium-full, crisp and very soil-driven in personality, with a fine core and a very long, focused and racy finish. An absolute steal in this vintage! 2013- 2025+." 90/100 John Gilman, View From the Cellar
