Maximin Grunhauser Riesling 2007
One of the earliest bud breaks ever recorded at Grünhaus and spring temperatures like in midsummerpushed the Riesling vines to an early flowering end of May. During the summer there was the ideal mixof sunshine and rain which guaranteed an uninterrupted growth. Harvest started on October 8th and as aresult of intensive hand labour the estate had very healthy grapes. After a natural sedimentation of themusts the fermentation started with the estate's own natural yeasts. The Riesling wines of 2007 showrefined exotic fruit flavours with subtle elegance and finesse which result from an exceptional long timeof the grapes being on the vines.
The Mosel-Saar-Ruwer region is known for the finest Riesling wines in the world. The Mosel yields thesoftest, broadest and fullest wines, the Saar the steeliest and most austere, the Ruwer the most fragrant,with a fine fruity acidity.
Aromas of slate and citrus yield to savory lime and peach notes on the palate. This turns compact on the finish, so give it time to integrate. A tinge of licorice fills the aftertaste. Best from 2010 through 2020. 3,000 cases made.
The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked...
The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
