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 grapes come from the single vineyard of Schloss Johannisberg. The south facing
vineyard is steep, with a 45° gradient and is situated at between 114 metres to 181
metres above sea level. The forest on the top of the Taunus Mountains protects the
vineyard from cold winds from the north. To the south, the River Rhine gently flows in
front of the estate, in the foothills of the vineyard. The 50° parallel runs directly through
the vineyard and the unique soils of Taunus quartz, topped with loam and rich loess
retains moisture and heat, encouraging the vines to ripen. This soil formation imparts
the classic mineral characteristic which is evident in this wine. The vineyard is
cultivated manually and the harvest takes place by hand.


Winemaking
The grapes were carefully selected and then pressed in whole clusters. 85%
underwent a slow, long and cool fermentation with wild yeast in stainless steel tanks
preserving the varietal characteristics of Riesling and the terroir from which it hails.
15% was fermented in 1,200 litre wooden barrels, made from "Schloss Johannisberg"
oaks from the estate.


Tasting Note
A fragrant, fruity bouquet of grapefruit, apple and lychee with hints of fresh grass
characterise this fine, off dry Riesling. Beautifully balanced, with a full bodied texture
and a creamy finish. Classic and vibrant German Riesling.
