Riesling – grown deep in quartzite – matured in the underground treasure chamber “Bibliotheka Subterranea”. Multi-layered, concentrated with enormous potential for cellaring.

Schloss Johannisberg is a legendary winery and producer of some of the world’s finest and most highly regarded Riesling wines, thanks to over 900 years of winemaking history.

The 50-hectare vineyard, located right on the 50th parallel north, surrounds the castle itself, sloping down in terraces to the Rhein river to the south. The soil is characterized by Taunus quarzite with an overlay of fertile loam and a layer of lœss, as well as a small amount of iron dioxide, which gives the soil a reddish hue.

The 2020 vintage was another of a series of very warm vintages, with temperatures in the summer months above the long-term average. An early budding combined with an early flowering led to the harvest starting 14 days earlier than normal. Healthy, ripe berries with enormous potential was the result meaning the 2020 vintage more than holds its own against other years.

“ONE OF THE GREATEST RIESLING-TERROIRS ON THE PLANET WINE.”
ROBERT PARKER, WINE ADVOCATE
