Tasting Notes


ABV:
7.5 %

Notes

More compact and elemental than its Herrenberg sibling, the Abtsberg Spätlese is soaked in apple droplets, freshly cut grapes, a little fruit skin and latterly dried tropical fruit notes as the wine opens up. Fine, zippy acidity and rock salt on the finish, all underpinned by a sleek, wiry blue slate feel. Drink the Herrenberg while the Abtsberg sleeps.

Notes
The 2022 Riesling Maximin Grünhäuser Abtsberg Spätlese is still under a slight veil of reduction. The palate then presents a serene cloud of gently sweet, creamy fruit aromatic with grapefruit skin, Mirabelle plum, an edge of Seville orange peel and a shimmer of white pepper. The sweetness is subtle and precise, framed with fine, mouth-watering lemon acidity. Absolute zestiness appears on the finish. (Sweet)

Von Schubert

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.
