Winemaker Notes

The Abtsberg Spätlese is a selection from vineyard parcels harvested late in the season. Thelonger hang time produces more fully developed aromas and flavors, and greater complexity.The Abtsberg vineyard is one of the greatest sites in all of Germany, with wines characterized by a fine structure, subtle minerality and great delicacy.

JS 96
James Suckling
Great harmony and originality, as well as enormous concentration, making this a stunning Spätlese. The mineral freshness at the finish is literally breathtaking. Drink or hold.

Wine Enthusiast
Subtle whiffs of lime zest, earth and smoke perfume this vivaciously spry spätlese. It's a tightly wound, spine-tingling sip that pierces the palate in bold strikes of lemon, lime and steel. Its youthful energy feels nervous now but should round out and deepen in complexities through 2035.Cellar Selection
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2017 Maximin Grünhaus Abtsberg Riesling Spätlese offers a generous yet clear and mineral bouquet with pastry and lemon aromas on the clear and generous yet elegant and terroir-driven nose. The attack on the palate is pretty piquant, crystalline and racy, while the mid-palate round and textured, followed by a lingering, crystalline and salty-piquant finish. Rating: 93+

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.

Following the Mosel River as it slithers and weaves dramatically through the Eifel Mountains in Germany’s far west, the Mosel wine region is considered by many as the source of the world’s finest and longest-lived Rieslings.

Mosel’s unique and unsurpassed combination of geography, geology and climate all combine together to make this true. Many of the Mosel’s best vineyard sites are on the steep south or southwest facing slopes, where vines receive up to ten times more sunlight, a very desirable condition in this cold climate region. Given how many twists and turns the Mosel River makes, it is not had to find a vineyard with this exposure. In fact, the Mosel’s breathtakingly steep slopes of rocky, slate-based soils straddle the riverbanks along its entire length. These rocky slate soils, as well as the river, retain and reflect heat back to the vineyards, a phenomenon that aids in the complete ripening of its grapes.

Riesling is by far the most important and prestigious grape of the Mosel, grown on approximately 60% of the region’s vineyard land—typically on the desirable sites that provide the best combination of sunlight, soil type and altitude. The best Mosel Rieslings—dry or sweet—express marked acidity, low alcohol, great purity and intensity with aromas and flavors of wet slate, citrus and stone fruit. With age, the wine’s color will become more golden and pleasing aromas of honey, dried apricot and sometimes petrol develop.

Other varieties planted in the Mosel include Müller-Thurgau, Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) and Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc), all performing quite well here.
