Tasting notes

On the nose, this wine has aromas of fresh lemon and yellow plum, with minerality with excellent freshness. The sweetness and crisp acidity are well balanced, resulting in a Riesling with a refreshing, off-dry finish.

Vinyards

The ‘Monopol’ Riesling is a blend from two prestigious vineyards: Herrenberg and Abtsberg. Both vineyards are south facing providing optimal sun exposure, however, they vary in soil type. The vines of the Abtsberg grow on blue Devonian slate, while the Herrenberg site is dominated by red Devonian slate. The vineyards belong entirely to the von Schubert family and are classified as VDP. Grosse Lage.

Vinification

This wine is produced with grapes harvested from younger vines in both the Herrenberg and Abtsberg vineyards and is made in an off-dry style. The cellar is situated minutes from the vineyards to ensure quick pressing after harvest to retain aromatics, freshness and complexity of the resulting wine. The grapes are harvested by hand and carefully pressed by a pneumatic press. The must is then fermented with natural yeasts, 50% in stainless steel tanks and the other 50% in large oak casks.

Producer

Located on steep, south-facing slopes two kilometres from where the Ruwer river meets the Mosel, the estate of Maximin Grünhaus has a history of viticulture dating from the Roman times. It takes its name from the Abbey of Saint Maximin, a Benedictine monastery which owned the land from the 7th to 18th century. Passing into French administration under Napoleon and then eventually to the von Schubert family in the late 19th century, the estate is now overseen by sixth-generation family member Maximin Von Schubert, who took over from his father Carl Von Schubert in 2014.
