This bends more in the slate and mineral direction on the nose with fresh wet slate, pithy limes and gun smoke. The palate delivers a very assertive and fresh array of fine citrus fruit and a convincing core of acidity, supporting lime, white-peach and fresh-herb flavors. Very lively. Drink or hold. ...

Reserved for the Trier auction in September this year, the gold-capsuled 2018 Maximin Grünhaus Abtsberg Kabinett Nr. 25 is very pure and flinty on the still reductive and sulfur-tinged, beautifully slatey nose that reveals generous, super intense, perfectly ripe and seductive fruit. Lush and juicy, with a beautiful layer of salts and slate on the seamlessly textured palate, this is a perfectly balanced yet tensioned Kabinett with a generous yet precise and highly finessed character. This beauty was picked at the end of September and is from a single Fuder that "tasted so special from the beginning to the end, even in blind tastings," explains Maximin von Schubert. "So, we decided to bottle it on its own under its vat number." Next to Egon Müller and Florian Lauer, this is perhaps the only VDP estate that sells a whole vat through the auction. This Kabinett was bottled with 7.5% alcohol. Tasted in June 2019.

White peach and lime are tinged with fennel and thyme on a forthcoming nose. These combine for a succulent, cooling and brightly juicy impression on a glossy palate. A tongue-tingling suggestion of peach fuzz and lime zest contributes delightful invigoration to the buoyant, bell-clear, stone-lined finish. This outclasses its 2017 counterpart.

green grapes

Varietal: Riesling

The pale skinned fruits of the Riesling grapevine have been grown in and around Germany's Rhine Valley for centuries, and contributed much to the country's wine culture. Today, Riesling grapes are grown and processed in several countries around the world, where they are prized for their ability to grow well in colder climates, and their unique flavors and characteristics. Riesling grapes produce an impressive array of wines, including fine semi sweet and dessert wines, to excellent dry white wines and sparkling varieties, all which allow the grape to shine through as a premier example of an excellent white wine varietal. One of the things which makes Riesling such a special grape is the fact that it is highly 'terroir expressive', meaning that the features of the land it is grown on can come across well in the flavors and aromas in the wine. As such, it isn't unusual to find flavors of white stone, or smoky ash-like notes in a fine Riesling alongside the more usual orchard fruit flavors more commonly associated with good white wines.

Country: Germany

If German wine has had something of a bad reputation in the past, it may well be the fault of the fact that for a long time now, the Germans have simply kept all the best produce to themselves. Visit any town or village in wine producing regions of Germany, and you'll be faced with a stunning array of extremely high quality wines, each matched with local dishes and full of distinct character and flavor. As white wine production makes up for about two-thirds of all Germany's wine industry, this is by far the most visible and widely enjoyed type of wine, but one should not overlook the quality and range of rosé and red wines on offer from this fascinating country. In particular, the Spatburgunder wines (the German name for Pinot Noir) are generally of an exceptionally high quality, being full of dark, intense hedgerow fruit flavors and exciting spicy notes with a silky smooth finish.
