Professional reviews:

Stuart Pigott (Jamessuckling.com): “Cool and leafy yet super-ripe with gigantic depth this doesn’t leave you in any doubt about its profound originality. In spite of this the acidity is less strident than in many of the best 2016 GGs from the Nahe. Don’t hesitate, because this wine doesn’t either!” 98/100 pts

Vinous: “Red raspberry, huckleberry, white peach, wet stone and black tea on the nose set the stage for a polished palate performance lusciously generous in fruit yet transparent to diverse – smoky, stony and saline – mineral nuances. There is some of the same invigorating sense of seed-crunching and fruit-skin-chewing here as is conveyed by the corresponding Frühlingsplätzchen, but in the context of a more polished, glycerol-enriched underlying mouthfeel and remarkable clarity and finishing focus.” 94/100 pts

Wine Advocate: “The 2016 Nahe Riesling Halenberg ‘GG’ is lovely, pure, fresh and refined on the smoky nose, where crushed stone and grapefruit aromas are displayed. Round, lush and juicy on the palate, this is a gorgeously finessed and balanced Halenberg with great elegance and tension on the long, crystalline finish. An impressive Halenberg!” 94/100 pts
