Schloss Johannisberg Grünlack Riesling Spätlese 2016
Picked between October 27 and November 3, the 2016 Rheingau Riesling Schloss Johannisberger Spätlese 'Grünlack' opens with a beguiling bouquet: stony and spicy-flinty on the coolish nose but also piquant with its tropical fruit and notes of lime blossoms. On the palate this is a generous and lush Riesling whose acidity is smooth but perfectly interwoven. This Grünlack drives me to lose my willpower. It is such a sensual and erotic but also highly elegant, piquant and salty Riesling Spätlese that I can't spit. I don't even have the discipline not to drink the whole bottle! I admit, this is my wine Venus: coming out of the Venus mountain (a rocky quartzite mountain here), alluring with piquant tropical fruit flavors, luring me in without letting me out. Drink Date: 2017-2050. Score - 94. (Stephan Reinhardt,, Dec. 29, 2017)
