Johannishof Rieslng Kab 2008

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

This is a classic, dry Riesling offering aromas of yellow fruits, quince and round mineral undertones. CHARTA wines are produced according to stringent quality criteria, dedicated to tradition, distinctive in style. Rich fruit on the palate is supported by bright acidity into a crisp finish.

Wine-growing can be traced back in the family in old documents to the year 1685. The origin of the proberty, originally a mill, dates back to 1790. Wine-growing in the vicinity of the Elsterbach stream is mentioned in a document already in 817.

Violet, peach, white pepper and mineral aromas and flavors highlight this delicate Riesling. The vibrant structure drives the flavors, picking up spice and mineral accents on the aftertaste. Drink now through 2020. 1,000 cases made. -BS Fresh apple tinged with brown spices rise from a glass of the Esers' 2008 Johannisberger Riesling Kabinett V (which comes from the unmentioned vineyard Vogelsang). Delicate (more even than its 9% alcohol would suggest) and judiciously though obviously sweet, it finishes with succulence enhanced by a suggestion of ripe Persian melon. This will be an ideal solo libation or if carefully paired over the next 4-5 years, but lacks the incipient complexity that might justify holding it longer.
