Schloss Vollrads Trockenbeerenauslese--Vintage 1959
Rheingau. Graf Matuschka-Greiffenclau.
Lots CCC and DDD labels with small tears.
"..a magnificent vintage, though the excessively hot summer created unusual, unprecedented, winemaking conditions. However, from sun-enriched grape juice with an extraordinarily high sugar content, glorious wines were made, resulting in a record number of Beeren and Trockenbeerenauslesen in the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer districts." GVWB
The great estate Vollrads reached its pinnacle of quality in this vintage and undoubtedly this wine..
