Tasting Notes

Carl von Schubert introduces his 2007 Maximin Grunhauser Herrenberg Riesling Eiswein as a "little" example of its genre. In fact it is far from illustrating the too-common tendency this vintage of offering but modest concentration of acidity that had clearly significantly diminished in the course of unprecedented long hang time. On the contrary, here a bright, almost tear-jerking citrus character is evident throughout, accompanied by an appealingly delicacy and penetration. With the concentration of an herbal elixir mingled with lemon, tangerine, pear, and lime sorbet, this offers terrific sheer refreshment, while herbal, nut oil, and citrus zest accents offer pungent, persistent finishing interest. I would want to re-visit this in a decade before pronouncing on long-term aging potential, but those who can afford and truly want to drink Riesling Eiswein from top sites and growers will not be the least disappointed. These grapes were left free-hanging, incidentally, not shrouded in film while awaiting their big freeze.
