The Johann Georg vineyard site was planted in 1875 and produces very low yields of around one tonne per acre from a crop of old, gnarly, dry grown vines. The top soil is fortuitously sandy with excellent clay subsoil. Fruit is selectively hand harvested, grapes are gently destemmed into a small open top fermenter and vinified over the course of a week or more on skins, hand pumpovers are applied twice daily. After a time, the musts are basket pressed into a selection of new and prior use French oak hogsheads for the completion of ferments. Johann Georg is treated to two years maturation before bottling, completely unfiltered and unfined.
Dark purple black colour. Powerful aromatics of bright red and black fruits, floral perfumes and briar, cedar, savoury spice, cured meats and sweet herb. The palate is full bodied and sophisticated, displaying purity of fruit and subtle barrel ferment characters. Stylish and elegant but with great intensity, the tannins are fine and integrated adding structure and poise. Silky, but solid, completed by an amazingly lengthy finish.
