Reviews and Ratings

From the Rheingau wine region, Schloss Schönborn Estate 2012 Riesling Qualitätswein is a racy Riesling with lush stone fruit, ripe apple, caramel, petrol and orange blossoms on the nose and palate. This is a medium-bodied, silky and delicious wine that would pair well with smoked fish, mild vegetarian curries or just on its own. Great balance of acidity to sweetness and very versatile at only 10% abv. Enjoy now or hold for five years in cellar. - Community Wine Reviews
