Product Description

The 2016 Maximin Grunhaus Herrenberg Riesling Kabinett, from the winery's Herrenberg vineyard, is based more on red slate, than its neighbor Abtsberg. It also has deeper topsoil that retains more water, which can be of great benefit in dry years. The wine is more generous and tends to open up sooner than those of Abtsberg, but are capable of equal longevity. This wine is produced in the delicate Kabinett style, and exhibits the distinctive stone fruit flavors and red slate minerality that are typical of this vineyard's terroir.

Varietal Composition: 100 percent Riesling
Appellation: Mosel

94 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Maximin Grünhaus Herrenberg Riesling Kabinett is super clear, crisp and fresh on the nose, showing bright Riesling fruit along with a crunchy slate aroma. Racy, piquant and salty, this is a crystalline picture-book Kabinett from the Herrenberg. The finish is long and complex, the wine absolutely gorgeous. Bottled with 7.5% alcohol and roughly 50 grams of residual sugar that doesn't taste sweet but fruity. Tasted March 2018." -SR, 4/27/18

92 Points - Wine Spectator
"Well-crafted, light and elegant, yet bursting with flavor. Features lime, peach, floral and slate notes, showing great harmony from start to finish. Textbook Kabinett. Drink now through 2023. 1,140 cases made." -AZ, 2/28/18

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"While initially offering more earth than fruit, this sprightly kabinett amasses bold white peach, grapefruit and gooseberry flavors as it opens and melds. Vivacious acidity and lingering undertones of crushed earth and clay lend structure and depth. Drinks well already but should improve through 2030." -ALI, 4/1/18

92 Points - Vinous
"A surprisingly ripe nose for Kabinett features Persian melon as well as white peach, with at most the merest hint of site-typical white or red currant. But the polished, luscious, buoyant palate adds bright lime and grapefruit to the mix, generating the sort of tingling brightness and pushback to the wine’s residual sugar that one anticipates from Grünhaus Kabinett at its best. This finishes with vibrant persistence, minty coolness and striking transparency to smoky and crystalline stony nuances." -DS, Mar/2018
