Fruity bouquet of green apple and apricot, racy and juicy on the palate with the unique slaty minerality of classic Maximin Grünhäuser wines.
One of the earliest bud breaks ever recorded at Grünhaus and spring temperatures like in midsummer
pushed the Riesling vines to an early flowering end of May. During the summer there was the ideal mix
of sunshine and rain which guaranteed an uninterrupted growth. Harvest started on October 8th and as a
result of intensive hand labour the estate had very healthy grapes. After a natural sedimentation of the
musts the fermentation started with the estate's own natural yeasts. The Riesling wines of 2007 show
refined exotic fruit flavours with subtle elegance and finesse which result from an exceptional long time
of the grapes being on the vines.
The Mosel-Saar-Ruwer region is known for the finest Riesling wines in the world. The Mosel yields the
softest, broadest and fullest wines, the Saar the steeliest and most austere, the Ruwer the most fragrant,
with a fine fruity acidity.
