About the Winery:
Schloss Vollrads is the oldest continually run winery in the world, with a noble history in the wine trade dating to the year 1211. Located along the storied banks of Germany’s Rhine River valley, the estate draws on 200 acres of vines, planted exclusively to Riesling. Its ancient vineyards rise from the river on south-facing hillsides whose pitches range from gentle to dizzyingly steep, with slopes of up to 70 percent. Due to their superb terroirs, more than a quarter of the domaine’s holdings claim a Grosses Gewächs (Grand Cru) designation. These outstanding vineyards, and the talents of distinguished winemaker Dr. Rowald Hepp, result in brilliant Rieslings of crystalline purity and complexity.

Tasting Notes:

This Riesling is a classic Spätlese (late harvest) without botrytis, very clear and fruity. Sweetness and acidity are perfectly balanced, so that the wine is centred and the taste lingers. Sun and the fruitiness of the grape join together in a dance on your tongue. The Schloss Vollrads Spätlese has a long aging potential.


Ratings & Reviews:

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast (2017):
"Delicate white-blossom and lemon notes extend from nose to finish in this juicy, concentrated spätlese. It's medium sweet and feather light on the palate, undulating with flavors of plump white peach and grapefruit. Pristine minerality and zesty lime acidity lend freshness to the finish." - AI (Apr 2019)
