"So bracingly clean and wide and blue-white-green, it's like a breath of fresh air. This is just thirst-quenching! Tasting this like standing under a forest waterfall on a hot day; face, body, mouth turned open to its cool, cleansing, sweet purity." / Tamlyn Currin @ Jancis Robinson / 16 points
Origin determines: "The more site-specific the origin of a wine, the higher its quality" has for centuries been the guiding principle of Schloss Reinhartshausen. So we begin where many others have already stops. It is as simple as it sounds, but not less labour intensive. Out vineyards are maintained and self-managed with a great deal of lifeblood, expertise and, not least, plenty of work carried out of hand. Healthy, ripe grapes create the best wine which is the best ambassador of its origin. After careful, selected hand picking and gentle pressing, the quality from the vineyard is preserved and developed further in the cellar. "The very best quality through controlled idleness".
The Portfolio from which the Schloss wines originate includes almost all the best sites from Erbach and Hattenheim. The grapes for the Schloss wines are the fundamental pillar, so to speak, of the Rheinhartshausen wine range. All ripped on officially classified sites, they start with the goodness of their origin where others stop. These sites certify the high quality of their Chateau Riesling and give it enough character and complexity to ripen for further 2 to 3 years. The character of the bouquet is rich with gentle hints of green apples and apricots.
On the palate it shows strength, refinement, and marvellous aromas. A refreshing, hearty Riesling with a long finish.
Food recommendation : Beast served with light appetiser. Ideal to be served as wine by the glass and a superb allrounder.
