Broad and powerful, pulling no punches in expressing its peach, passion fruit, citrus and mineral notes. Pushes the limits of alcohol, but remains balanced and long. Needs time. Best from 2007 through 2022.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better than the Johannisberger Spatlese — sit down and take in the hypnotic sweetness of this Riesling’s honeyed nose. The plump, rich texture washes layer after layer of ripe, spiced flavor over the palate, followed by a sharp, cleansing acidity that lifts and extends the finish. Dizzingly spectacular Auslese.

A rich and dense wine of clear Riesling fruit flavors, very concentrated. Aromas of exotic fruits and the zest of an orange; clear taste with an elegant length — rich and silky smooth. It explodes on the palate with tremendous complexity. An excellent after-dinner drink or an accompaniment to blue cheeses; also, with a slight chill it’s great as an aperitif.
