For any serious German buyer, whether collector or Riesling dork, the wines of Emrich-Schönleber belong in the cellar directly next to Keller or Schäfer-Fröhlich.
Somewhat vegetal to herbal and slightly mushroomy core and stone fruit scent with nuances reminiscent of almond blossoms. Straightforward, still youthful fruit with delicate melting and some candy, lively acidity, hints of white pepper and cardamom, moderate tannin, quite good persistence, salty notes in the good to very good, slightly grippy finish.
The VDP Classification is not stipulated in German wine law, but reflects the VDP’s own private regulations. The key to the uniqueness of VDP.Wines is their origin. The soil, light and shade, wind, heat and coolness all contribute to making the wines exceptional and give them personality and character. The winegrowers in the VDP analyze these conditions in detail, consulting old vineyard maps, searching for appropriate grape varieties and evaluating the vineyards based on both their historical performance and current potential.
