Maximin Grunhauser Abtsberg Auslese #75, Von Schubert 2007
Maturing Mosel: 10 years after retrospective of 2007 REPORT
(von Schubert Maximin Grünhäuser Abtsberg Riesling Auslese Nr. 75) This offers a rather elegant and fresh nose made of cassis, grapefruit puree, white minerals and minty herbs wrapped into honeyed apricot blossom. Delicately ripe and comparatively smooth flavors of pear, almond and dried herbs drive the aromatics on the palate. These lead to a rather powerful and hugely intense feel in the rather bold and powerful finish. This is still not fully there but all the elements are in place to eventually produce a fine Grünhaus Auslese albeit in slightly higher toned than usual. 2022-2042
