The 2019 Schloss Johannisberger Riesling Trocken Gelblack is a full-bodied, pretty rich and ripe dry Riesling with racy acidity and good grip on the finish. It is pretty loud this year and less refined than I remember from previous vintages. Tasted in June 2020.
2020 - 2027

Grape variety 100% Riesling
Appellation Rheingau ? Single vineyard Schloss Johannisberg
Terroir The totally south-facing vineyard is steep as 45? and climbs from 114 m to
181m above sea level. The forest on top of the Taunus protects the vineyards from cold winds from the North and in the South the Rhine lays like a lake in front of the estate on the foothills. The 50? parallel runs directly through the vineyard and the unique soil formation with Taunusquarzit topped with loam and rich loss is perfect for mineral Rieslings keeps water and temperature very well.
Vintage profile After a very warm and dry year 2018, 2019 started with a water deficit in the soil, which increased during the summer.
Except for a short winter intermezzo in January, which enabled us to harvest an ice wine again after 10 years, the period February to April was too warm, so that nature woke up early and gave us a lead of 10 days to the long-term average. A cool May was followed by summer months that were clearly too warm and too dry. On 30 July, the "age-old heat record" from 1892 was surpassed, followed by an unprecedented heat wave in July with temperatures above 40?C. Here we recorded in part considerable damage due to sunburn. The water situation only eased at the end of September. Unfortunately the rain came too late and exactly at the time of the main harvest. In this year all predicate stages could be produced up to Beerenauslese (berry selection) and ice wine, with considerable quality.
Vinification Hand harvest and gently pressure. Fermentation - 85% stainless tank, 15% wooden cask ? 1200 l (wood from our own ?Schloss Johannisberg? oaks).
Characteristic Bright yellow with green reflexes.
This Riesling presents distinct aromas of citric freshness, accompanied by green apple and underlain with a hint of herbal spice. On the palate it is full-bodied with enamel, sweetness and fresh acidity that complete a long lasting finish.
Pairing Dishes made of fish, poultry, vegetables and pasta. fried zander with ratatouille.
Analysis residual sugar ? 7,9 g/l ? acidity ? 8,1 g/l ? alcohol ? 12,5 %
Ripening level ? 87? Oechsle
Serving 7? - 9? Celsius
