Schloss Johannisberg in the Rheingau is a landmark and meeting point of culture and wine growing. A top-ranking 35 ha single vineyard wine estate and a monument to the history of wine. Schloss Johannisberg is the oldest Riesling estate of the world (100% Riesling since 1720). It is the home of the quality designations for German wine, especially for Spätlese (late harvest - invented in 1775) but also for Auslese (selected harvest - in 1787) and Eiswein (wine from frozen grapes - in 1858). The wines have gained their reputation as belonging to the finest produced in Germany. Their elegance, fruit and flavour delight the connoisseur and consumer alike.
Grapes: 100% Riesling
Vinification and Viticulture: Late harvested grapes. 2007 vintage: Alcohol 8.5 % by vol. 7.1 grams of acidity, 84.4 grams of residual sugar.
Serve: An excellent accompaniment with lobster, long simmered lamb neck and rich seafood. Its fruitiness will balance salty cheeses as well as smooth spicy and hot flavours in Asian cuisine.
Tasting Note: Exotic fruits on the nose, pineapple and mango. Juicy but with an elegance and minerality. Perfectly balanced with a very long finish.
