1997 Von Schubert Maximin Grünhäuser Abtsberg Riesling Auslese - Germany, Mosel Saar Ruwer (12/12/2020)
Incredibly youthful and impeccably precise, this is just about perfect wine. From the time before pradikat inflation, this wine is drinkable with dinner, rather than being better suited as an aperitif or for afterwards. Still showing fresh fruit, it has also developed a creamy edge that brings a more mouthfilling sensation to a wine that is light on its feet. In a class of its own, Grunhaus is just Grunhaus, one of the three most distinctive estates in the larger Mosel region, alongside Prüm and Müller.
