This is a very elegant wine of salinity, limey freshness and persistent complexity. It is powerful, yes, but not alcoholic. It is still Riesling and the salty length is really wonderful. - Stephan Reinhardt collapse

At first one gets to inhale the usual herbaceous aroma, but in the case of the Halenberg it is already supplemented by the fumy expression of its slatey foundation. The palate too has a gravelly notion, but not to the extent of merciless minerality. A profound expression of fruit is based on local orchards rather than the exotic, and the acidity has been well contained to allow the exhibition of a generous texture. The all-in-one Grosses Gewächs from the Schäfer-Fröhlich estate. 18.5/20 (MS) collapse

The sumptuous texture and unctuously ripe peach flavor are balanced by a subtle acid structure that will allow the wine to evolve gracefully. With a persistent ginger spiciness lingering on the finish, this dry Riesling is rather unevolved today but should look better a few years down the road. -- Joel B. Payne collapse
