  • 2020 Grunlack Riesling Spatlese, Schloss Johannisberg Wine Republic Heros White Wine

    2020 Grunlack Riesling Spatlese, Schloss Johannisberg

    £4600

    The legendary Schloss Johannisberg is steeped in history. The vineyards were planted on the orders of the Roman Emperor Charlemagne. Planted solely with Riesling grapes in 1720, Schloss Johannisberg was the world’s first Riesling Estate and plays a significant part in wine history. It was here in 1775 that the Spätlese quality was discovered using late picked grapes suffering from “noble rot”. Following this discovery, in 1787 the estate gave Auslese, Beerenauslese and Trockenbeerenauslese to the wine world.

    This 2020 Grunlack (Green label) Riesling Spätlese opens in the glass with an exotic bouquet of orange peel, pineapple, and lime complemented by ripe, red apple and delicious mineral undertones. Initial sweetness is perfectly balanced by a juicy freshness on the palate and a delicately creamy finish.

    The south-facing vineyard is steep, with a gradient of 45° and climbs from 114 to 181 metres above sea level. The Riesling vines are grown in quartz stone from the Taunus hillsides interspersed with red clay and topped with loam and rich loss, which retains water and the heat of the day. This unique vineyard sees the 50° parallel run directly through the vineyard and the forest on the top of the Taunus hillsides protects the vines from cold winds. The vines produce limited yields and the grapes are carefully harvested by hand. Spätlese is translated as “late harvest”: the grapes are harvested at least seven days after the normal harvest, so they are riper, have higher sugar content and produce wines of greater intensity.

  • 2015 Riesling Silberlack 1st Growth, Schloss JohannisbergWhite Wine

    2015 Riesling Silberlack 1st Growth, Schloss Johannisberg

    £5500

    The Schloss Johannisberg Riesling Großes Gewächs Silberlack (Silver Seal) is one of the finest dry white Rieslings in Germany.  Grapes for the wine were handpicked and fermentation took place in 1,200-litre old oak barrels from Schloss Johannisberg oak and lasted for six weeks. The wine was then left on its fine yeast lees for seven months, adding complexity and weight to the wine.

    Deep lemon yellow in colour this wine shows complex aromas of mellow apricot and quince, complemented by pear, white floral notes, a hint of smoky minerality and an elegant spiciness in the background. Concentrated on the palate, with mouthwatering acidity and a long, clean finish.
