2011 Emrich-Schönleber Frühlingsplätzchen Riesling trocken

19.99

Wine Advocate: 91/100

“Bittersweet scents of buddleia and iris on the nose of Schonlebers 2011 Monzinger Fruhlingsplatzchen Riesling trocken fetchingly persist inner-mouth, along with fresh apple and mirabelle in a context of textural caress, gloss, and expansiveness but also of vibrant refreshment. There is a sense of mid-palate looseness here that proves easy-going and enhances the overall sense of generosity. In the finish, hints of salt and stone add to the satisfaction and the desire to take the next sip.”

“Veteran Werner Schonleber stresses the role played in 2011’s high quality by tiny drought-impacted berries as well as, naturally, the growing season’s early start; generally cool nighttime temperatures; and five weeks of ideal weather from mid-September on. That small berry size obviated any green harvest, but there was a substantial pre-harvest of Riesling destined largely for generic bottlings from September 26, with the two Pinots being picked immediately thereafter. The main harvest for Riesling commenced October 3, lasting for two weeks. Like many estates, botrytis arrived here directly on the heels of the heavy rain that fell around September 10-12, but dried to ideal purity and fineness to serve for ennobling concentration without overtly fungal character or less desirable concurrent infections.”  91/100 pts

Vinous: “While many members of the press sing the praises of Werner Schönleber’s vinous artistry, few remember that his son Frank has been responsible for the cellar since 2006. But the fact that nothing much has changed is a favorable sign for tomorrow. Germany has too few estates that have maintained the high standards of quality that we expect of great producers over generations. This one has not only proven its mettle but continues to invent. The off-dry R that is always released a year or two after the other wines pays tribute both to a somewhat old-fashioned style and to a new future.”
