Rated 92 by Wine Advocate
From predominantly raisined rather than botrytized grapes, the 2018 Maximin Grünhaus Herrenberg Riesling Kabinett is lush, salty-piquant, quite generous and sweet yet also pure and enormously fresh and salty. Bottled with 8.8 grams per liter of acidity and concentrated fruit, this is terribly young but very promising.

Rated 91 by Vinous Media
Penetrating pungency and tangy brightness of marjoram- and sage-laced lime and white currant are delightfully counterpoised with unexpected subtle creaminess on a buoyant palate. Sweetness is quite evident, but its interaction with this wine’s (for 2018) atypically high acidity of nearly nine grams proves productively invigorating, adding to the appeal of an emphatically sustained finish.

green grapes

Varietal: Riesling

Riesling grapes have been grown in and around central Europe for centuries, and over time, they became the lasting symbol of south Germany's ancient and proud wine culture. Whilst the reputation of German wines abroad has in the past been mixed, the Germans themselves take an enormous amount of pride in their wineries, and Riesling grapes have now spread around the globe, growing anywhere with the correct climate in which they can thrive. Riesling grape varietals generally require much cooler climatic conditions than many other white grapes, and they are generally considered to be a very 'terroir expressive' varietal, meaning that the features and characteristics of the terroir they are grown on comes across in the flavors and aromas in the bottle. It is this important feature which has allowed Riesling wines to be elevated into the category of 'fine' white wines, as the features of the top quality bottles are generally considered to be highly unique and offer much to interest wine enthusiasts.

Country: Germany

Despite being known primarily for sweet and semi-sweet white wines, Germany actually produces a surprisingly large and varied range of wines, with many reaching an extremely high standard and being very well received on the world stage. The terrain across much of the southern parts of the country is extremely fertile, with mineral rich soils adding a wonderful edge to already excellent grapes, and thus resulting in delicious and highly elegant white and rosé wines. The climate in many parts of Germany also allows for some more unusual wine-making practices, with certain regions specializing in the highly aromatic and distinctive 'ice-wines' which are gaining popularity by those looking for something a little more intense and unusual. With these wines, the producers allow the grapes to freeze through the early frosts, resulting in a higher sugar content and a fantastic set of flavors and aromas in the finished product. Germany has long since favored quality over quantity, and a new enthusiasm for fine wine within the country is producing truly exciting results, using a blending of traditional and contemporary techniques.
