    The dry 2016 Rheingau Riesling Schloss Johannisberger GG 'Silberlack' exhibits an intense lemon color and a deep, precise nose of ripe and concentrated yet coolish Riesling notes intermixed with pure clay and quartzite aromas. Full-bodied, rich and intense on the palate, with firm yet ripe acidity, this is a lush, round, elegant, powerful and compact-structured yet balanced Riesling with a long and aromatic finish. The wine tastes generously sweet (with 5.1 grams per liter of acidity) but also complex and tensioned, and its aromatic finish is piquant and salty. Still very young, the 2016 GG indicates great aging potential and is probably the best Silberlack I have tasted thus far. I'd keep it in a cool cellar for another 5-10 years. It will surely be a great Johannisberg classic in a couple of years. Drink Date: 2020-2036. Score - 93. (Stephan Reinhardt, robertparker.com, Dec. 29, 2017)
