Vintage 2007 at Johannishof:
“2007 was the much desired vintage of each Rheingau vintner. An extremely early blossoming, a long ripening period with moderate weather conditions and sufficient precipitation and a picture book autumn brought us a Riesling vintage that could have hardly been better. The development of the vines was well ahead 3 weeks until late summer. In August the warm temperatures and the sunshine hours allowed for a slower maturation with steady acidity levels. The wines could be harvested during more than 5 weeks without being in a hurry.
The harvest result was very pleasing: good quantities and aromatic Riesling grapes with high must weight.” (Owner/Winemaker Johannes Eser)
Name of vineyard: Berg Rottland - a nearly perfect wine growing microclimate is achieved here due to the strong intensity of light and optimal light reflection from the Rhine.
Soil: Quarzite with high contents of slate
Exposure: Completely south-facing
During cultivation the focus is placed on the distinctive Riesling character, which results from the attentive fermentation of the wine in stainless steel tanks and wooden barrels.
