Reviews and Ratings

From the Rheingau wine region, Schloss Johannisberg Grunlack 2018 Riesling is a spatlese Riesling meaning the grapes sourced for this wine were late-harvested so they are riper and have a higher sugar content. Spatlese wines can be either sweet or dry. This example is sweet. Look for field flowers, wild herbs, wet stone, lime and lemon zest flavours, fresh and zesty on the palate. - Community Wine Reviews
