FB Schoeleber was just admitted to VDP association of the best German Riesling growers two years ago; they were the surprise find at the Wiesbaden Grosses Gewachs (Grand Cru dry wine) tasting.  A rising star of the Rheingau; their wines have a linear, elegant style with all stainless steel elevage with natural yeasts.  Schoenleber excels at making dry wines at all different quality levels and they have embraced the new VDP quality pyramid of Gutswein (Estate), Ortswein (Village), Erste Lage (Premier Cru), and Grosse Lage (Ortswein).   This is an outstanding village wine, treated with the same care as the Grand Cru, but from younger vines.  It has a high-tone floral nose and grapefruit on a lithe body.  Pure, dry and moderate in alcohol.  We were impressed with the long finish and complexity of this exceptional dry Riesling
