Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Von Schubert, Maximin Grünhauser Abtsberg, Grosses Gewächs, 2019

A touch of spontaneous fermentation leads to layered, multifaceted aromas of wildflowers, lemon zest and cool wet slate. On the palate a remarkable sense of balance pervades, with a translucency to the flavours that allows them to feel complex, yet illuminated. Sweet pea, yellow grapefruit, fresh lemon and rock salt, white flowers and fine crushed slate. Beautifully balanced it is hard to imagine such a poised, pitch perfect GG from the Ruwer just ten years ago. Crystalline and yet silky smooth – a beauty.

Von Schubert

This estate is centred on a former monastic Manor House at the foot of the Maximin Grünhaus hill close to a narrow tributary of the Mosel, the Ruwer. This towering hill is responsible for world famous wines of Carl von Schubert whose sensible attitude to vineyard management, careful selection and yield restriction result in classic examples of Ruwer style wines that are at bold, racy and mineral. Three of the region’s top vineyards are all situated on this hill. The Herrenberg occupies most of this,producing taut, mineral wines, whilst the other two comprise Bruderberg and Abstberg. In the monastic period the former provided the brothers’ tipple whilst the venerable, opulent Abstberg provided the extravagant imbibing requirements of the Abbotts.
