Schloss Schonborn Erbacher Marcobrunn Ries. Spatlese 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Here is a wine estate on that's on the move right to the top of the class in the Rheingau. And what a class it is with some of the greatest names in all of Germany located in the this fabled wine district. Schloss Schnborn has recently received 4 grape clusters in Gault Millau Wine Guide 2009 rating the estate as one of the finest producers in Germany The publication also awarded Schloss Schnborn the `Collection of 2009` thanks to efforts of Peter Barth the estate's highly esteemed winemaker. The Marcobrunn is a great site with the Schnborn family owning some of its best parcels. The wine speaks of Rheingau Riesling and of the Marcobrunn in particular. Loads of power and concentration yet with all the polished elegance that one would expect from this site. The bouquet offers deep pungent essences of apricot puree and wet stone with sweet juicy and scintillating flavors displaying hints of tangerine mineral and peach. The brilliantly crisp finish adds to its complexity creating a wine of except

91 points Wine Spectator: `Beautifully displayed apricot orange cream and stone notes mesh seamlessly with the rich texture and lively structure. Really juicy on the finish with a long aftertaste. Drink now through 2022. 500 cases made.` (12/08) Schloss Schnborn is one of Germany's largest and oldest estates and can be traced back to the times of the crusades in 1349. The estate is still family owned today. The famous Marcobrunn vineyard as interpreted by Schloss Schonborn is truly a delight but not for the faint of heart. This is an old style Baroque Riesling - big heavy and concentrated with the Marcobrunn nose of mineral spice and herbs tempered with a warm rich earthy character. Wound up and still young drink it now for its sheer intensity or put down to let the complexity come out.
