EXCELLENT RATING – WINE SPECTATOR MAGAZINE

In the March issue of the international wine-magazine “WINE SPECTATOR” Schloss Johannisberg achieved excellent results.

2002 Schloss Johannisberger Riesling
Spätlese Grünlack – Rheingau
„A dazzling mix of tropical fruit and stony terroir. Plump and juicy initially, like biting into a ripe peach, then a wave of mineral washes the palate, leaving an elegant, dry, stony aftertaste. Focused and long.”
91 points

2002 Schloss Johannisberger Riesling
Auslese Rosalack – Rheingau
„Rich and silky smooth, with focused apricot, spice and lemon confit flavors that get a boost from the moderately firm structure. Good lingering finish.”
90 points

2002 Schloss Johannisberger Riesling
Eiswein Blaulack – Rheingau
„Light bodied and sleek, with spices and baking bread aromas and flavours over nectarine and grapefruit. Its balance tips toward the acidity, and it has moderate length.”
92 points

2002 Schloss Johannisberger Riesling
Beerenauslese Rosa-Goldlack – Rheingau
„Pungent from botrytis, evoking spice and hard candy notes, with hints of caramel and orange peel. A cashmerelike texture and firm underlying structure result in a cleansing, tangy finish.”
94 points
