Winemaker's Notes:

Superior is a new wine from Maximin GrĂ¼nhaus. Low-yielding old vines from the best parts of the Herrenberg and Abtsberg vineyards give superb quality grapes that are fermented with natural yeasts in traditional large old oak casks. The result is an off-dry wine that embodies all the characteristics of classic Maximin GrĂ¼nhaus: perfectly balanced peach and apricot fruit, with delicate spicy mineral flavors and a lingering finish. They have great ageing potential.

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.
