Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Von Schubert, Maximin Grünhauser Abtsberg, Riesling, Spätlese, 2009

Long intense, citrus and floral, a herbal element coming from the wild yeasts used in fermentation, supreme balance and great mineral concentration. There is real complexity here with spice, peaches, apricot and limejuice, rock salt and manderin over slate, flint and white pepper. This has the vintage hallmark juicy acidity, enters quietly, slowly builds before exploding in a shower of intense fruit and minerals. With tightrope balance and a finish that is weightless, pure and focussed. Excellent.

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.
