"Fragrant yellow blossoms and orange peels perfume this sprightly Riesling. It’s unabashedly fruity, full of sweet peach and tangerine flavors yet offset by a racy backbone of acidity. The finish is refreshingly tart. Loosen Bros. USA. —A.I."

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.
