Von Schubert, Maximin Grünhauser Herrenberg, Riesling, Auslese

2018

Tasting Notes


Maturity:
Keep/Drink

ABV:
7.5 %

Notes

Chamomile mint and yellow peach on the nose, sweet slick fruit below, very elegant and silky, apple blossom and white flowers then a saline finish. This is pure silk. Not without tension but the fruit is so pure and refined and seamless that it is hard to resist. The Herrenberg has yielded wines of real tenderness this year.

Notes
Quince and apple jellies, mingled with Chartreuse-like herbal and floral essences on the nose, transform on the palate into delicate, creamy chiffon (very much as takes place in the corresponding Abtsberg). Delicacy, though, by no means precludes richness, and the soothingly sustained finish delivers an uncanny combination of sumptuousness with buoyancy.

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.
