Sharing a great bottle with dear friends is one of the best things in life: Stefan Doktor, managing director of Schloss Johannisberg, shared this bottle of the Johannisberg 1971 Auslese Rosalack with us at the Riesling Gala in Kloster Eberbach today. What a Rheingau Riesling beauty in the glass: peach and apricot skin, honey, beeswax, tobacco, thyme and a lovely salty finish. The combination with the braised deer was the perfect match and highlighted the still existing fruit on the mid palate. Even the colour of food and wine fitted very well 🙂 Thank you Stefan for this experience, your hospitality and your friendship!!
