Maximin Grunhauser Abtsberg Riesling Spatlese 1999
"Apple, almond and lime flavors are etched in slate, courtesy of the racy structure and sharp relief embodied by this prototypical Mosel spätlese. Patience will be rewarded. 1,000 cases made."
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.
