Halenberg R 2009

012Last tasted about a year ago, I couldn’t resist opening another bottle recently. I tried the first bottle in early 2013. Here is a relatively short synopsis of the third bottle (I now have three bottles to go).

Emrich-Schönleber, Monzinger Halenberg, Riesling – R – 2009, Nahe
Bright golden yellow. Quite open and expressive. Succulent, exotic and creamy on the nose, with notes of orange and drippingly overripe, yellow-fleshed peach. A thin film of creaminess and succulence continues onto the palate, coating the inside of my mouth. Medium- to full-bodied. Highly complex and saline. There is just enough ripe acidity to lend refreshment and urgency. Persistent on the finish. Utterly delicious – and up there with the best – in its off-dry idiom.
