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.
The Riesling vines are grown in quartz stone from the Taunus hillsides interspersed with red clay and topped with loam and loess. The yields are limited and the grapes are carefully harvested by hand at optimal maturity levels.
The grapes were carefully selected and then pressed in whole clusters. A slow, long and cool fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks preserving the varietal characteristics of Riesling and the terroir from which it hails.
A fragrant, fruity bouquet of lemon and peach. Fuller on the palate, off dry, peachy, crisp acidity and a long finish. Classic German Riesling.
