Maximin Grunhaus Herrenberg Riesling Kabinett 2018

$34.99

The Herrenberg vineyard is based more on red slate, than its neighbor Abtsberg. It also has deeper topsoil that retains more water, which can be of great benefit in dry years. The wines are more generous and tend to open up sooner than those of Abtsberg, but are capable of equal longevity. This wine is produced in the delicate Kabinett style, and exhibits the distinctive stone fruit flavors and red slate minerality that are typical of this vineyard’s terroir.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 92
"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. "

Wine Spectator

WS 93
"Very hoppy on the nose, with jasmine and saffron notes extending on the palate, followed by a richly spiced core of peach and persimmon flavors. Hints of cream and tangerine zest emerge, revealing a bit of grip toward the finish. Complex, invigorating, elegant and beautifully balanced, this is a terrific expression of the category. Drink now through 2033."
