Tasting Notes

The 2007 Maximin Grunhauser Abstberg Riesling Auslese Fuder #75 reflects the maximum among of noble rot available this vintage, though von Schubert insists that was not much. Poached peach and heady, musky floral notes on the nose – along with a whiff of fermentative residues – leads to a richly-textured yet juicy and not at all heavy palate performance. A decidedly honeyed, brown spiced finish emphasizes the wine’s sense of seamlessness. What’s missing here, though, is the multi-dimensionality of the corresponding Auslese #70, and I suspect that this will continue to be lovely but never exciting over the next two decades.
