Winemaker's Notes:

A classic, elegant Ruwer Riesling with enormous aging potential. This wine displays an herbal nose, ripe fruit notes on the palate, and invigorating acidity.

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.
