2019 Von Schubert Maximin Grunhaus "Maximin" Riesling Mosel

SKU #1582191 90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Crisp green apples and white blossoms perfume this luminously fresh, mouthwatering white sourced from a handful of vineyards in the Mosel-Ruwer region outside of the estate's monopole. An ideal introduction to the zippy Maximin Grünhaus style, it's a crowd-pleasing, lemon-lime sip that finishes with just a trace of balancing sweetness on the finish. Best now–2024.

Outer quote mark Cool and herbal, this medium-dry riesling has plenty of juicy apples and tart peaches. Quite simple, but clean finish. Drink now. Screw cap. Inner quote mark (8/2020)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2019 Riesling Maximin opens to the Ruwer world of Maximin Grünhaus. The nose is bright and delicate, revealing ripe, elegant and floral raisin fruit without much depth or complexity yet all the charm of the Ruwer terroir. Bottled with 18 grams of residual sugar, this is a round, mouth-filling and juicy yet savory and stimulatingly salty Riesling with an intensely aromatic finish. Easy drinking but by no means simple. Tasted in June 2020. Form what I have tasted so far from Maximin Grünhaus, 2019 is another stellar vintage for the traditional domain in the Ruwer. To sum up my following notes: You can hardly buy any better Kabinett Rieslings from the 2019 vintage than those from von Schubert. The Kabinett selections from the Abtsberg are world-class wines that do not stop singing. I also want to underline that the Superiore is still an underestimated word-class Riesling as the 2019 vintage demonstrates again massively. Last but not least, von Schubert is more and more becoming one of the region's best producers of both Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir. The 2018s show great quality, and as soon as it turns autumn again, these wines shall pair with my game dishes. 2018 has also been the vintage for Maximin von Schubert's first orange wine: Mash. It is a wine you should taste, if you are open for something completely different. (SR) Inner quote mark (8/2020)

K&L Notes

Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 01 20. The 2019er Riesling Maximin is an off-dry Riesling (with 18 g/l of residual sugar) made from fruit sourced from a trusted partner (also in the Mosel and not confined to the Ruwer valley) as well as from own Mertesdorf holdings. It offers a rather direct nose made of pear, elderflower, apricot blossom, chalky minerals, and subtle herbal elements. The wine develops a fully off-dry profile on the soft and alluring palate, but this softness is nicely lifted up by quite some zest in the surprisingly intense finish. The after-taste is fruity, zesty, suave, and mineral. Now-2021."(06/2020)
