Maximin Grünhauser Abtsberg Auslese Riesling 2015

Medium lemon yellow . Ripe lemon , white flowers , camomile, touch of wet slate and subtle petrol notes . Very elegant and precise . On the palate light and weightless with high acidity balancing the moderate sweetness . Ripe citrus , grapefruit , baked apple , wet stones , really intense and mouthwatering . Long and perfectly poised , honied finish . Young but drinking well , and will be fun to follow over the next 10-15 years . — 15 days ago

Maximin Grünhauser Abstberg Kabinett Riesling 2018

Floral & quite exotic on the nose with white flowers, orange zest, fresh lime, candied ginger, carmelized peaches. Bit there’s also great purity here.
Amazingly intense & rich in the palate. But also so racy, spicy and mineral. Great balance and depth and the length is just insane! White peach, ripe lime juicy, lemon tart… there’s a bit of shortbread roundness on the midpalate, with the finish very linear, mineral, rocky & salty.
More in the sweeter side, which is unsurprising with the warm vintage. Sooo drinkable, though! Gorgeous stuff!

Maximin Grünhäuser Abtsberg Kabinett Trocken Riesling 1995

BR was only off by a decade in this blind, which is both a testament to her blind-tasting acumen and the producer's greatness. She thought it was an 05' which given how young this was looking, was a forgivable mistake. The producer was an easy one - that unmistakable green tea aroma with streaks of white flowers, kaffir lime, and anise was just so Grunhaus. How she figured out it was from Abtsberg still baffles me, but I guess it was really just a 50/50 shot once the producer was established. Finally the lightness and dry linear finish placed it right in the Kabinett Trocken territory. Bravo, BR! As for me, the wine was just too digestible to have warranted any thought when drinking - disappeared over lunch with a good half of the effort contributed by yours truly. — 2 years ago
