"Unexpected and delightful scents and flavors of quince and fresh apricot join with white currant and lime in this infectiously juicy, palpably dense yet alcoholically buoyant bottling. Cinnamon, basil and honeysuckle serve for alluring perfume that continues in the mouth, and an emerging sense of textural creaminess in no way inhibits bright refreshment or transparency to stony and invigoratingly piquant finishing nuances. There is a distinct sweetness here vis-à-vis the corresponding Herrenberg, but the effect is entirely supportive, and in both instances we have examples of what was possible on the Ruwer this year provided one diligently selected for entirely healthy, ripe fruit from a topnotch site."

Maximin Grunhaus

The Superior bottling is an off-dry wine from old vines in the best part of the Abtsberg. The Abtsberg vineyard is one of the greatest sites in all of Germany. The soil here is predominantly blue slate, with a lighter topsoil than the estate’s other vineyards. It is extremely steep (up to 70% slope) and has perfect south-southwest exposure, making it the warmest site at Grünhaus. It is fermented with natural yeasts in large oak casks. The name “Superior” is a reference to the estate’s monastic history.
