Winemaker's Notes:

This Riesling has an exotic bouquet of mango, peach and ripe apple and has noticeable, natural residual sugar.

This wine is an ideal accompaniment to Asian spices such as curry, ginger, or lemon grass. It has perfect balance of acidity and natural sweetness and has the right characteristics to stand up to such exciting dishes.

My Notes:

About Schloss Vollrads:

Schloss Vollrads can look back on centuries of wine-making tradition. According to an ancient deed, the Knights of Greiffenclau sold their wines to the convent of St. Victor in Mainz as long ago as 1211. Today, Schloss Vollrads combines 800 years of its tradition with the latest in wine-making engineering, environmental awareness in cultivation, and meticulous care of the wines. Some 126 acres of vineyards are solely devoted to the Riesling grape.

The distinctive quality of Schloss Vollrads wines is derived from the combination of well-thought out measures, not least the absolute consistency in continuing to grow Riesling grapes. Moreover, the stringency in limiting the harvest by pruning the vines, the careful tending of the vineyards working on the latest ecological know-how, the late selective hand-picking of the grapes, their pressing, the individual storage of the juices and the careful supervision of the maturing process of the wines are just some of the distinctive features involved.
