    Winemaker's Notes:

    Fruity bouquet of green apple and apricot, racy and juicy on the palate with the unique slaty minerality of classic Maximin Grünhäuser wines.

    One of the earliest bud breaks ever recorded at Grünhaus and spring temperatures like in midsummer pushed the Riesling vines to an early flowering end of May. During the summer there was the ideal mix of sunshine and rain which guaranteed an uninterrupted growth. Harvest started on October 8th and as a result of intensive hand labour the estate had very healthy grapes. After a natural sedimentation of the musts the fermentation started with the estate's own natural yeasts. The Riesling wines of 2007 show refined exotic fruit flavours with subtle elegance and finesse which result from an exceptional long time of the grapes being on the vines.

    The Mosel-Saar-Ruwer region is known for the finest Riesling wines in the world. The Mosel yields the softest, broadest and fullest wines, the Saar the steeliest and most austere, the Ruwer the most fragrant, with a fine fruity acidity.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Aromas of slate and citrus yield to savory lime and peach notes on the palate. This turns compact on the finish, so give it time to integrate. A tinge of licorice fills the aftertaste. Best from 2010 through 2020. 3,000 cases made.
