Maximin Grunhaus, 2016 Maximin Grünhäuser Riesling Abtsberg Kabinett

93+
"The 2016 Maximin Grünhaus Abtsberg Riesling Kabinett has a deep and seriously flinty bouquet with ripe and concentrated—but not showy—Riesling aromas. Lush and mineral on the palate, this is a mouthwatering and super juicy Abtsberg with a salty-crystalline and crunchy palate. Tasted March 2018."

"Site-typical white peach and lime are tinged with woodsmoke and crushed stone on a subdued nose and a subtly creamy, delicate palate. While this lacks the effusively fruity charm of the corresponding Bruderberg or the striking transparency to mineral notes currently on display in the Herrenberg, one should bear in mind that Abtsberg is often slower to reveal itself. Thyme, wintergreen, mint, peach kernel and white currant add cooling, piquant and tingling nuances in a lingering finish underlain by wet stone"

Maximin Grunhaus, 2016 Maximin Grünhäuser Riesling Abtsberg Kabinett

"A lively but firmly structured version, with piercing acidity that acts as a backbone to the flavor-packed core and persistent mineral elements. Compact, offering a long finish. Drink now through 2023. 1,000 cases made."

VINEYARD: The soil at Abtsberg 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.

HARVEST: . No pesticides or herbicides are used. The grapes are harvested by hand and, depending on the character of the vintage, several passes may be made through the vineyard.

VINIFICATION: The Kabinett Prädikat (ripeness level) is used for the lighter, more delicate style that comes from parcels that are picked early in the harvest.
