Vinification of the Silberlack Riesling GG from Schloss Johannisberg
The basis for the elegant Silberlack Riesling GG from the Rheingau are grapes from the Riesling grape variety. Silberlack Riesling GG is an Old World wine through and through, as this German wine breathes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underscores the success of Old World wines. The fact that Riesling grapes thrive under the influence of a rather cool climate also has a very high influence on the ripening of the vintage. This results, among other things, in particularly long and even grapes and rather moderate alcohol content in the wine. After harvesting, the grapes are quickly taken to the winery. Here they are sorted and carefully broken up. Fermentation follows in large wood at controlled temperatures. Fermentation is followed by aging for several months on the fine lees before the wine is finally drawn into bottles.
