Regular price £33.65

Schloss Reinhartshausen's 2017 Erbacher Schlossberg Riesling Spätlese is an IWC 2019 Gold Award Winner.  An elegant late harvest, this Riesling has sweet flavours of ripe peach, apricot and melon fruit. And with fine residual sugar and acidity it is a delicious revelation.

Schloss Reinhartshausen's Grand Cru site in Schlossberg is amongst the best in the world. For the cellar masters of Schloss Reinhartshausen it is both an honour and a pleasure to be able to work with these benchmark sites. The grapes grown there are gently crushed by traditional horizontal wooden presses which involves intense manual labour. 

Nearly half a century ago, the most valuable vineyards around the historic castle were handed to the wine estate in sole ownership as "Schlossberg". The small grapes from the ca. 60 years-old vines of this prime site in the Rheingau guarantee a quality, which is totally incomparable. Wines from the Schlossberg stand alone as testimony of the Riesling culture of the Rheingau.
