Wine Advocate (David Schildknecht): “With Schonlebers’ 2011 Monzinger Halenberg Riesling Spatlese one witnesses an easily verifiable instance of terroir influence, insofar as the wine is analytically considerably lower in acidity (at just 6.5 grams per liter) than the corresponding Fruhlingsplatzchen, yet displays a tad more lively indeed, downright infectious juiciness and refreshment. It also displays a more obvious cantus firmus of wet stone, over which flows a steady, sensually satisfying and sustained stream of peach, mirabelle and Persian melon laced with quinine and almond extract. I would plan on enjoying this beauty over the next 10-12 years, though it would not be the first Spatlese from this estate to make a fool out of me by lasting longer than I predicted. Like its Fruhlingsplatzchen counterpart, incidentally, this reflects fruit at most 10% of which, Schonlebers say, was botrytis-affected.” 92/100 pts
