Schloss Johannisberger Spatlese Trocken 2006

Schloss Johannisberger Spatlese 2006
"While the rest of the Schloss Johannisberg wines from 2006 exhibit restraint and elegance, the Spatlese focuses instead on a powerful ripeness, with thick, dense flavors of roasted pineapple and ripe peach. Its balanced by acidity and stony minerality, but its unbridled opulence seems slightly incongruous in the lineup.

Schloss Johannisberger Auslese 2006
"This wines pure, concentrated flavors of mango, tangerine and Asian pear are honeyed and intense, while its fine balance gives this a remarkable clarity and grace. With all the opulent ripeness of the vintage, that balance lifts the flavors, making them seem almost weightless.
