Winemaker's Notes:

Concentrated and rich, yet its balance is remarkable, feeling controlled and precise in its definition. Tropical fruit on the bouquet. This is a classic dessert wine with the merit of being light in alcohol, elegant and very fruity. Silky and smooth texture, lots of tropical fruit, delicious, refreshing acidity. The finish exhibits both density and detail, showing increasingly prominent notes of slate.

This wine is "liquid dessert", drinks perfectly with light (not too sweet) desserts, after dessert or instead of dessert.

About Maximin Grunhauser:

First documented in 966 A.D. the von Schubert estate is not only one of the oldest but also one of the best. They are sole owners (Monopole) of the 3 vineyards (Abtsberg, Bruderberg and Herrenberg) that the estates wines are coming from. 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.
