Wine has been cultivated at Schloss Johannisberg for 1200 years, exclusively Riesling since 1720. This is the birthplace of one of the oldest and most noble grape varieties in the world. The long history of Schloss Johannisberg brims with passion, responsibility and pride allowing the production of outstanding Riesling and inspiring people to make it.
Schloss Johannisberg Riesling Grünlack Spätlese 'Green Seal' is a rich and fragrant Spätlese. An exotic bouquet of orange peel, pineapple, passion fruit and floral notes dominate the nose. This carries over onto the palate complemented by lime, red apple and delicious mineral undertones. Initial sweetness is perfectly balanced by a juicy freshness on the palate with a delicately creamy finish. Great to drink now but will cellar for decades to come!
100 points from Stuart Pigott (JamesSuckling.com) -
"What do you say about a wine that almost literally knocks you off your chair? All the flowers and fruits of the tropics, but so delicate and refined that you can hardly get a grip on it. Such brilliance and such precise balance enables this medium-sweet riesling to defy effortlessly the rules of the category and confidently swim directly against the current of wine fashion. Supernatural freshness at the finish. Taste this before you die! Drink or hold."
