Tasting Note:

Schlossberg is the steepest and warmest vineyard in the Rheingau, quartz soils on slate and sand. This is very different then to the slatey Hollenberg of Assmannshausen, a windier and warmer climate which, with the difference in soils, bears very concentrated, super ripe, thick-skinned grapes. Intense and concentrated, this is a sleeper that needs plenty of time in the decanter before being approached, several hours. Serious, brooding and complex flavours of spices, creme de mure, crunchy plums, vanilla, wild bramble, earth and minerals, this is structured and has a firm backbone bolstering the ripe fruits, a wine of imposing strength but toned and with a degree of refinement nonetheless. Stunning.
