2020 Schloss Johannisberg Rotlack Riesling Kabinett Feinherb Rheingau

SKU #1589405 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Ravishing, peachy nose that’s so subtle and delicate. Breathtaking balance of fascinating fruit and profound minerality! The touches of gooseberry and lime on the palate really electrify the balance. Extremely long finish that’s extremely herbal and mineral. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (7/2021)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2020 Riesling Kabinett Rotlack offers a very rich nose with intense and warm Riesling aromas that are reminiscent of dehydrated berries or even raisins. This is far too ripe and rich for Kabinett style, even though there are only minimum yet no maximum standards for this predicate that should deliver filigreed and just-ripe Rieslings in a light but tensioned style. This 2020 comes in with 11.5% alcohol and vivacious, really fresh and piquant acidity and also fine phenolic grip, but due to its richness and sweetness, this tastes at least like a Spätlese. In any case, this is a good and age-worthy Riesling that should be cellared for at least eight years and can go for decades. Tasted at Schloss Gobelsburg in July 2021. (SR) Inner quote mark (9/2021)

Schloss Johannisberg Riesling kabinett drinks with opulence and scope. This is a ideal wine meant for multiple drinking spans. The amount of layers this wine has indeed exhibits site along with the precision and a the care in the wine makers intentional style. An abundance of orchard fruit at first, followed by candied ginger, dried apricots, lychee, yellow pear, yellow melon and apples seasoned with exotic spices. The aromatics in this wine is never ending. The richness and length stays and lingers to no end. The mouthfeel is wonderfully copious and urging to be enjoyed with food. My dish of fresh pork and black olive sausages with sage lentils was a knock out of the park of a paring.
