Prinz von Hessen ‘Johannisberger Klaus’ Riesling GG (Grosses Gewächs) 2016

The grapes for this “GG” come from the VDP.GROSSE LAGE® ”JOHANNISBERGER KLAUS”.  The southernfacing slopes sport deep, calciferous loss soil.  This rich Riesling is incredibly precise, showing aromas of stone fruit, fresh apples, tropical fruit and mint with a polished minerality.  A sophisticated Riesling character on the palate.  Gripping, complex and intense.

Reviews & Awards

“Platinum Award: Best Medium Dry White Wine in Show + 97 points”

Judges comments: “Silver-green in colour, with a suite of perfectly defined, crystallised fruit aromas and ample spring-flower charm, too. Give it time in the glass: there’s spellbinding Riesling intricacy here: minutes of happy sniffing. On the palate, the wine is pure, limpid, open, with high-optic flavours of orchard fruits, a touch of vinosity, perfectly judged rounded sweetness which finished all but dry, and some stony sobriety lurking below. 2018-2030.”
Decanter World Wine Awards 2018

Gold Medal

Berliner Wine Trophy 2017

“93 points”

“The best of the GGs from this producer with fine white peach character. Very discrete and a little bit old-fashioned aristocratic in style this is a seriously elegant and long wine with the potential to develop through 2035.”
James Suckling, September 2017

“17/20”

“An animating fragrance of green fruit raises expectations of freshness, which the palate does not disappoint. (…)..”
Jancis Robinson MW, August 2017
