The 2014 Halenberg Riesling trocken GG is so clear and so discreet, but so herbal, yeasty and attractive that you fall in love with it straight from the very first impression. Monolithic on the palate, rich, intense and powerful, this is an enormously juicy and highly elegant, perfectly balanced Riesling from 45- to 50-year-old vines in a top terroir. This Halenberg is still untamed, but also precise and has a great substance and lingering salinity. - Stephan Reinhardt

Violet perfume, mint, wintergreen, smoky-sweet pungency of machine oil and mouthwatering intimations of toasted shrimp shell all put me as much in mind of Nebbiolo or Cabernet Franc as of Riesling in a heady aromatic display of almost dizzying complexity. Fig and white peach lusciously inform the silken palate, while trapped CO2 reinforces a sense of levity and animation. Melon rind, wet stone and iodine lend counterpoint; green herbal infusions offers soothing coolness; and shrimp-shell reduction adds saliva-inducement to a buoyant, near-endless finish of crystalline clarity that both caresses and invigorates. -- David Schildknecht
