Schloss Vollrads, with nearly 800 years of viticulture experience, is one of the oldest wine estates in the world…

The vineyards are located in the heart of the Rheingau, where the quality of Riesling is unsurpassed by any other region in the world.

In 1728, the world’s first Kabinett was produced at Schloss Vollrads and, 300 years on, the estate is still going from strength to strength under the watchful eye of Rowald Hepp and his winemaker Ralph Herke.

The estate now has 81 hectares of Riesling vineyards.

Vineyards

All Schloss Vollrads’ vineyards are planted with Riesling and are situated between the Rhine and the forest clad hills that protect the vines from the cool north winds.

Rowald has been improving quality at Schloss Vollrads since he joined in 1997 and his philosophy runs through every aspect of production.

Strict pruning ensures that yields are 40% lower than the legal requirement, while further reductions are made by crop thinning.

Vintage information

Harvest began on the 29th of September with an experienced team of pickers.

The health of the grapes and the diversity of aromas allowed the team to alter the finishing process with longer time on the lees and various fermentations.

Vinification

Fermentation was long and gentle, at low temperatures (16ºC) in stainless steel tanks with selected yeast strains for a period of two weeks.

The Volratz Riesling is always the first wine to be bottled and released by Schloss Vollrads each year. Volratz is the ancient name of the Schloss Vollrads estate.

Tasting Notes

Greenish yellow in appearance. The nose is aromatic and fruity with notes of peaches and apricots. Well-balanced, crisp and mineral with good levels of refreshing acidity.

A clear exotic fruit flavour with elegance and a medium to long finish.
