Producer Note
The legendary Schloss Johannisberg is steeped in history. The vineyards were
planted on the orders of the Roman Emperor Charlemagne. Planted solely with
Riesling grapes in 1720, Schloss Johannisberg was the world's first Riesling Estate and
plays a significant part in wine history. It was here in 1775 that the Spätlese quality
was discovered using late picked grapes suffering from "noble rot". Following this
discovery, in 1787 the estate gave Auslese, Beerenauslese and
Trockenbeerenauslese to the wine world. Schloss Johannisberg is a single vineyard
designation in its own right and one of a handful of German vineyards that does not
have to display a village name on the label.
Vineyard
The vines are restricted to limited yields with selected harvesting by hand. The
vineyard soils are made up of quartz stone from the Taunus hillsides, interspersed
with red clay and topped with loam and loss.
Winemaking
Following a careful selection process the grapes were pressed in whole clusters,
followed by slow, long cool fermentation under temperature controlled conditions,
maintaining the purity of fruit in the wine.
Tasting Note
Lovely, complex and honeyed nose with subtle botrytis overtones, elegant with a
wonderfully long sustained finish. A classic.
Serving Suggestion
Pairs well with moderately sweet, tropical dishes featuring fresh fruits.
