WINE REVIEW
Vinous
Maximin Grünhaus

"Pear, white peach and quince are lightly overlain on the nose with a veil of CO2 and yeast, but bursting with primary juiciness on a luscious, silken palate that boasts Kabinett-like delicacy with Spätlese concentration and ripeness of flavor. A cooling hint of mint, green tea pungency and an undertone of wet stone add fascination and allure to a finish of fine – albeit for Herrenberg, surprisingly sedate and soothing – persistence. The flavor intensity is clearly partly driven by an abundance of ripe acidity; in fact, the level is higher here than in the corresponding Kabinett, though I wouldn’t have guessed that. Smoky and stony notes emerge with longer exposure to air, and I don’t doubt that this already impressive Spätlese will improve with time. But I don’t envision the sort of animation or quite the transparency to active mineral impingements emerging here that one already experiences with that Kabinett."
