“The 2014 Halenberg GG is a superb bottle in the making, with the riper profile of the acids this year allowing it to balance out perfectly with only 3.8 grams per liter of residual sugar to buffer its nearly eight grams per liter of acidity. The wine is utterly refined on both the nose and palate, with the bouquet delivering a beautiful constellation of grapefruit, tart orange, tons of smokiness, a gorgeous base of slate soil, wild years, a touch of mossiness and a topnote of lemon peel. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and racy, with excellent mid-palate depth, great balance and superb focus and grip on the nascently complex and oh, so classy finish. 2023- 2055+. 94+.” John Gilman
“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. ” 96 points 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.” 96 points David Schildknecht
