Stephen Bitterolf, the founder of Vom Boden importer, felt very much inspired by the glass of 2004 Emrich-Schonleber Riesling GG that he feels it may have helped to inspire the beginning of his business. If that doesn’t convey the influence of these wines, there are other ways. They land in the same realm as Donnhoff and the Keller wines while remaining distinctly their own. The Schonleber wines are firm in their philosophy: “the wines offer true drinking pleasure, they’re honest, authentic, and unembellished, and lastly, a goal to produce wine with distinctive personalities.” The family forms a common core of thoughtfulness around the quality of the wine. They aim to exceed the high expectations of their wines with each vintage while maintaining precision in the vineyard. The family all participates in every manner of the winemaking.
“Mineral” says it all with its name. This is a representation of all the different soil types that can be found in the Nahe region. This is exuding the slate and volcanic underneath the vines while still showing off fruit from the young vines of the Grand Cru vineyards. This is for those that need wine that tastes of minerals and breathes acidity.
