Schloss Johannisberg Riesling Gelblack Trocken Rheingau 2019
A delicious just Trocken (dry) Riesling from the legendary Schloss Johannisberg.
This excellent dry Riesling combines great minerality with lots of fresh citrus and subtle tropical fruit. It has great texture and intensity with a long, generous finish that is extremely clean and refreshing. Pairs well with pork and duck dishes.
'a lush and fruity Riesling with a certain power, good acidity and mineral grip' - Wine Advocate
Schloss Johannisberg is widely considered to be one of the most famed and historic estates in Germany, having first been founded as a wine-producing Benedictine Monastery in 1100. The estate changed hands many times over the following six centuries but it took its first step towards quality viticulture in 1720, when it was entirely replanted with Riesling vines. To this day, the notable Schloss Johannisberg winery, which overlooks Germany’s picturesque Rhine River, is synonymous with Riesling and makes some of the finest, most long-lived expressions of this noble grape variety.
