Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Von Schubert, Maximin Grünhauser Abtsberg, Riesling, Kabinett, 2012

In monastic times the wine from the sheer blue slate Abtsberg (Abbott's hill) vineyard was reserved exclusively for the Abbotts. In 2012 it is the most overtly slatey and mineral of the wines to this point yet retains a juicy character that seems to define the 2012s from this estate. Precise and fresh, green apple, yellow plum and bright herb flavours alongside a lovely mineral component.

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.
