About This Wine

Schloss Schonborn flaunts about 75 hectares (compared to Schloss Johannisberg's 38), making it the biggest private estate in the Rheingau. It has been in the same noble family since 1349, which is sorta unreal to consider. Marcobrunn, Domdechaney, Baiken – these are among the most celebrated sites in the Rheingau and have been for centuries. Those who have had much experience with more recent wines from the stable should take note of Johnson's remarks: "Commercialism may have affected parts of the range, but the best Schonborn wines are undoubted Rheingau classics." This specific bottlle has a waxed cap and the capsule looks good, no signs of seepage. The fill is fine though not high, at probably about 4cm. The label is dirty but legible; the color of the wine is quite good.
