Schloss Johannisberg has its vineyards in the beautiful Rheingau. In general, the wines from the Rheingau are even more refined and with character and firmer in taste than the wines from Rheinhessen and Rheinpfalz. One of the most beautiful wineries in the Rheingau is without a doubt Schloss Johannisberg. Schloss Johannisberg in the Rheingau is undoubtedly Germany's most prestigious winery and world renowned for its Rieslings. It is the oldest Riesling winery in the world. It has been made since 817 and 100% Riesling has been produced since 1720. The winery is centrally located in the area and has a rich history. Originally it was a monastery that was later used as a castle. It was even once owned by our royal family. The wines are the most elegant in the Rheingau area and gain balance and suppleness as they age. Since 1748, a few bottles have been kept in the beautiful wine cellar, so that a unique collection has now been built up. Once every 25 years, the wines are inspected and fitted with new corks. And, it is assured, even the oldest white wines are still very drinkable!

The Schloss Johannisberger Gelblack is fermented in 1,200 liter barrels from our own oak trees. This Riesling is very concentrated but very clear with a slightly smoky bouquet of yellow fruit. It is a very aromatic, fresh and elegant Riesling with great purity. In the glass, this riesling has a golden yellow color with a young, fruity nose with peaches, apricots and pineapple. The wine is certainly ready to drink but will refine even further over the years and is certainly perfect to drink until 2032

Vineyard for 2021 Schloss Johannisberg Gelblack Riesling Trocken

Schloss Johannisberg bottles "Qualitätswein" under a label with a yellow seal. The Qualitätsweine mit Prädikat (quality wines with special properties) are classified as follows: Rotlach for the medium quality cabinet wines, Orangelach for the best cabinet wines, Grünlach for the average Spätlesen, Weisslach for the large Spätlesen, Rosalach for the Auslesen, Blaulach for the best qualities Auslese and Goldlach for the Beeren- and Trockenbeerenauslesen. Bad years do not deliver superior quality wine; The Auslesen with sky blue seal and the Beerenauslesen with gold seal will therefore not be found. Sometimes a sparkling wine is made from the lighter and less good Riesling wine, which is sold under the name Fürst von Metternich Prädikats-Sekt.
