Product Description

The 2012 Maximin Grunhauser Abtsberg Riesling Auslese is sourced from one of the great vineyard sites in the Mosel. Wines from the Abtsberg vineyard were originally destined for the table of the Abbot (or "Abt") of the Abbey of St. Maximin. The site covers 35 acres, parts of which have been planted with vines for over a thousand years. The soil here is predominantly blue slate, with a lighter topsoil than the estate's other vineyards. It is extremely steep, up to 70% slope, and has perfect south-southwest exposure, making it the warmest of the estate's vineyards. The wines are characterized by a finely structured, subtle minerality, a racy acidity, generous fruit and great delicacy.

93 Points - Wine Spectator
"This is minerally and polished, with a steely essence to the wild berry, white peach, melon and gooseberry flavors, carrying an enticing savoriness. The bright finish echoes with lemon curd and spice details. Drink now through 2040."
