Winemaker's Notes

Abtsberg vineyard 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 Grünhaus: perfectly balanced peach and apricot fruit, with delicate spicy mineral flavors and a lingering finish. This wine has great ageing potential

The Abtsberg Superior is a perfect match for all kinds of seafood, poultry and many dishes of the Asian cuisine.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Maximin Grunhaus Riesling Abtsberg Superior mingles almond, white peach, and musk melon in the nose and on a creamy, yet lusciously juicy palate. While more staid than the corresponding Herrenberg, it displays ample refinement, citric refreshment, and stone, salt, and graphite mineral nuances, and should be worth following for at least 12-15 years.
