The Abtsberg Superior is a perfect match for all kinds of seafood, poultry and many dishes of the Asian
"The 2007 Maximin Grunhaus Riesling Abtsberg Superior mingles almond, white peach, and musk melon in the nose and on a creamy, yet lusciously juicy palate. While more staid than the corresponding Herrenberg, it displays ample refinement, citric refreshment, and stone, salt, and graphite mineral nuances, and should be worth following for at least 12-15 years.
