This one is my favorite. Maybe because it’s Schaal’s newest offering. (Or maybe because the smoke and honey notes of my favorite whisky, Highland Park, resonate here – though of course without the peat, or heat!)

Voltaire called Schoenenbourg, the “Magnificent Hill,” the “most noble wine of France.” As Schaal explains:

The Gypsum soils here produce Rieslings that are deep, rich with some smoky depth, and hints of honey. The palate is concentrated and full, with the medium sweet fruit framed by good acidity and a minerality.

Suckling, who rates it the best of these (us old dudes stick together), agrees:

Wonderfully layered and rich with an intense, cooked-peach and tangy pineapple character. Full body. Power. Yet, direct acidity and alcohol gives this drive and precision. Drink now or hold.

A deeply layered and complex masterpiece.
