User Reviews for Schloss Vollrads Riesling Spätlese

Winemaker's Notes:

With nearly 800 years of viticulture experience, Schloss Vollrads is one of the oldest wine estates, not only in Germany, but probably in the world. Situated in the heart of the Rheingau, the estate’s 60 hectares of vineyards are planted exclusively with Riesling. With the death of Erwein Count Matuschka-Greiffenclau in 1997, the ownership of Schloss Vollrads passed to the Nassauische Sparkasse, which carries on the family’s tradition of viticulture. This Riesling is clean and bright, with a hint of straw in colour. The 2005 is fuller in style than the previous vintage, with ample perfumes of apricots and peaches on the nose. On the palate, it is beautifully balanced with the ripe fruit and residual sugar in perfect equilibrium with the characteristic zingy acidity of good Riesling. Long and slightly spicy on the finish.
