SCHLOSS SCHONBORN Hattenheimer Pfaffenberg Riesling-Trockenbeerenauslese, Rheingau 1971

Trockenbeerenauslese (TBA for short) means, literally, ‘dried berries selection’. Grapes are left on the vines (at great risk) long after normal and picked as individual raisined berries. The final wine has concentrated sweetness balanced by acidity that only the Riesling grape can retain at such extreme ripeness levels.

Region Rheingau

A small region of 3000 ha along the Rhine River, the Rheingau produces stunning wines from Riesling and Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir). The landscape of the region varies from steep slatey terraces to the west, to gently rolling hills and plains in the east. Despite being one of the most northern regions of Germany, it is able to produce some of the richest, ripest Riesling and Pinot Noir owing to most vineyards possessing a southerly aspect thus receiving sufficient sunlight and heat. Rheingau’s wines have ample body, richness and concentration while still retaining piercing acidity and minerality. The Prädikatswein from Rheingau tend to have higher alcohols (8-12%) and less sugar for each category compared to the wines of the Mosel. The best vineyards producing the highest quality wines are located around the villages of Rudesheim, Geisenheim, and Johannisberg.
