Maximin Grunhaus, 2016 Maximin Grünhäuser Riesling Herrenberg Kabinett

94
"The 2016 Maximin Grünhaus Herrenberg Riesling Kabinett is super clear, crisp and fresh on the nose, showing bright Riesling fruit along with a crunchy slate aroma. Racy, piquant and salty, this is a crystalline picture-book Kabinett from the Herrenberg. The finish is long and complex, the wine absolutely gorgeous. Bottled with 7.5% alcohol and roughly 50 grams of residual sugar that doesn't taste sweet but fruity. Tasted March 2018."

"A surprisingly ripe nose for Kabinett features Persian melon as well as white peach, with at most the merest hint of site-typical white or red currant. But the polished, luscious, buoyant palate adds bright lime and grapefruit to the mix, generating the sort of tingling brightness and pushback to the wine’s residual sugar that one anticipates from Grünhaus Kabinett at its best. This finishes with vibrant persistence, minty coolness and striking transparency to smoky and crystalline stony nuances."
