Winemaker's Notes:

Peachy bouquet, - a spicy Riesling revealing its origin from blue slate. Naturally fermented with wild yeast. A delicate wine with power and a lot of fruit and suppleness. Good companion with fine fish dishes.
My Notes:

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.
