The Schonfels GG, as a wine, is without a doubt the most structured, brutal and mineral of Lauer’s dry wines. It smacks one upside the head like a fortress built out of slate. Pure and precise - it is unforgiving and requires many years in bottle to integrate and become expressive. A 24- to 48-hour decant is not a bad idea. It is a monumental wine and perhaps the greatest dry wine of the Saar.

100+ year old ungrafted vines located on stunning hillside of very steep grey slate

south-east exposure looking overlooking the Saar

unique, extreme, unprotected & windy terroir for the region

A benchmark dry Riesling from one of the finest vintages for German Riesling in decades: petrol, crushed slate, blinding acidity, unreal texture, finishes for days. Can be cellared for 10-20+ years easily.
