About Schloss Johannisberg 2018 Riesling, Feinherb, Gelblack
Some 1,200 years of viticultural history are associated with Johannisberg. An eventful history, which, among other things, led to the creation of the world’s first Riesling wine estate and with it, a unique wine culture that has existed at Johannisberg ever since. Founded as a Benedictine monastery, the Johannisberg abbey quickly became a viticultural focal point and initiator in the Rheingau. Wine culture at Schloss Johannisberg has outlived the many storms of the past. Riesling is truly at home here. The estate is well aware that the historical past brings with it a responsibility in the future – with every new vintage, Johannisberg strives to carry on this unique Riesling culture.
This is an off-dry wine sourced from the estate vineyards. Hand harvested and softly crushed, a small portion is fermented in oak barrels and the rest in stainless steel. The wine then ages on the lees for 5 months. It shows pronounced notes of white flowers, lemon peel, lime zest, bartlet pears and white peach. Feinherb is an unregulated designation for a wine slightly sweeter than halbtrocken. On Sale!!
