Schloss Vollrads, with nearly 800 years of viticulture experience, is one of the oldest wine estates in the world. The vineyards are located in the heart of the Rheingau, where the quality of Riesling is unsurpassed by any other region in the world. In 1728, the world's first Kabinett was produced at Schloss Vollrads and, 300 years on, the estate is still going from strength to strength under the watchful eye of Rowald Hepp and his winemaker Ralph Herke. The estate now has 81 hectares of Riesling vineyards.
Schloss Vollrads Schlossberg Riesling 2015
The nose is bright and aromatic, loaded with white flowers, stony minerality, layers of fruit and herbal notes. Full bodied, the palate offers prominent flavours such as Mirabelle plum, grapefruit and fresh lemon zest. A very elegant Riesling with great finesse and depth. Grapes were hand harvested, gently pressed and fermented with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks over three weeks at a temperature of 18°C. After fermentation, the wine is aged on its lees for an extended period prior to bottling.
