Winemaker's Notes

Elegant tones of peach and some tropical fruit. Very refined, well structured, mineral acidity combined with an elegant fruitiness and an endless finish. Great pleasure to drink right away and great potential to age for 20 years and more.

Critical Acclaim

"Light and elegant, this is driven by its intense notes of slate, its minerality harnessing and enlivening the sleek apple and citrus fruit flavors. Its brisk acidity adds to the overall feeling of finesse."
92 Points

"Reduced in aroma, yet showing clearly defined black currant and mineral notes, with a squeeze of lime. Racy and intense, with bracing acidity on the finish and a nice licorice aftertaste. Best from 2010 through 2020."
90 Points

"Apricot and red currant on the nose of the 2007 Maximin Grunhauser Herrenberg Riesling Kabinett leads to a glossy, juicy palate with a dynamic interplay of fruit and mineral and an impeccable balance of textural caress and invigoration as well as of fruit acidity and residual sweetness, the latter supportive but not at all obvious, permitting long, fine trace of saline and smoky mineral nuances to linger. This should be worth following for at least 12-15 years. Incidentally, whether or not the category of Kabinett feinberb is phased out, von Schubert is committed to rolling back levels of residual sugar on his unabashedly off-dry Kabinett Rieslings to levels that prevailed until 15 or so years ago, when – he hastens to point out – acids were generally higher and less ripe than today.

Since 1982, Dr. Carl von Schubert manages the estate according to the motto: "As much handling as necessary, but as little as possible", putting him and his wines worldwide in the top class.
