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 south-facing vineyard is steep, with a 45° gradient and climbs from 114 metres
above sea level to 181 metres. The forest on the top of the Taunus protects the
vineyard from cold winds from the north, while in the south, the Rhine lays like a lake
in front of the estate. The 50° parallel runs directly through the vineyard and the
unique soil formation of Taunus quartz, topped with loam and rich loess, is perfect for
minerally Rieslings, retaining both moisture and heat.
Winemaking
The grapes were handpicked from the steep, south facing slopes of Domaine
Schloss Joahnnisberg in the Rheingau. These were pressed in whole clusters and
fermented in old oak barrels for a period of six weeks. The wine was then left on its
lees for seven months, adding complexity and weight to the wine.
Tasting Note
This deep lemon yellow wine shows complex aromas of peaches and apricots,
complemented by lemon, lavender, a hint of smoky minerality and an elegant
spiciness in the background. Concentrated on the palate, with a mouthwatering
acidity and a long, clean finish.
Serving Suggestion
A great match for roasted Turbot served with a herb risotto.
