Winery Wines Files 2

2010 Schloss Johannisberg Riesling Erstes Gewächs trocken Silberlack, Rheingau, Germany

Tart, firm, quite cool, clearly vegetal nose with citrus and stone fruit aromas, some cabbage and stony mineral notes. Taut, juicy fruit with present acidity, tart vegetable flavours, some tannic grip and clear minerality, persistent on the palate, has power, some depth, firm construction, first a little bitterish and roughening at the end, with air then juicy, very good, sweet finish. Clearly superior to the last, somewhat weaker bottle.

Editor note: Translate to English Reintöniger, tiefer und straffer Zitrus-Steinobstduft mit feinen kräuterigen und deutlich mineralischen Noten. Klar, geschliffen und saftig im Mund, etwas süßliche Frucht mit präsenter, feiner Säure, gewisser Schmelz am Gaumen, feine kräuterige Noten, hefige Anklänge und wieder viel Mineralik, zeigt deutlich Herkunft, zarte Kandistöne, viel Schliff, nur eher unnötiger Zucker, ausgezeichnete Nachhaltigkeit und gewisse Tiefe, sehr guter, wieder ein wenig süßlicher Abgang.
