Lot #294. Emrich-Schönleber Monzinger Halenberg Riesling Eiswein Goldkapsel VDP Großer Ring Versteigerung #20 2008

Description: Consists of 1 Half Bottle, 0.375L
Score: 97 JG.
"The 2008 Eiswein Gold Kap from the Halenberg vineyard is flat out stunning. The delicate, very pure and ethereal nose wafts from the glass in a haunting blend of pineapple, white peach, bee pollen, lovely stony minerality, a touch of fresh herbs and a floral topnote redolent of orange blossoms. On the palate the wine is medium-full, light and dancing, with magical purity, relatively moderate acids for an Eiswein, but an almost gem-like quality to its laser focus, perfect balance and very long, complex and classy finish. This is a relatively subtle and refined Eiswein that requires one to pay a bit of attention, as it is not going to hit the taster over the head, but what lies here in the glass is pure nectar!" John Gilman, View From the Cellar, Sep/Oct 2010, Issue #29
Provenance: The Seltenheit Cellar
