2014 Maximin Grünhäuser Riesling Herrenberg Spätlese
"A decadently floral nose of peony and faded lily mingles with hints of fungus and brown spices, signaling a Spätlese unapologetically influenced by botrytis. (As Carl von Schubert explains, this wine, like its Abtsberg counterpart, incorporates fruit that was picked as prospective Auslese material.) Lightly cooked yet still tart-edged apple is reinforced by overt sweetness on an expansive and gentle palate, the typical green herb notes of the site here turning toward mint and Thai basil while a hint of salinity lends saliva inducement to an otherwise soothing, mildly refreshing finish."
