The vintage 2009 allowed Mosel winemakers to produce some of the greatest dry-tasting wines in their career (see our Issue No12). This includes the von Schubert Estate, which excelled in this category of wines in this vintage. In particular, the Abtsberg Superior is a great success and on our private list of "not-to-be missed" wines in this vintage.
Maximin Grünhäuser Abtsberg Riesling Superior
Wow, this is a little jewel in the making. The wine offers the most gorgeous nose of peach, tangerine and pink grapefruit, with the telltale notes of vanilla of young Abtsberg. The balance on the palate is perfect, with just enough creaminess to give persistence without compromising the sappy side of the wine. The finish is effectively dry-tasting and most beautifully balanced. This is easily the greatest Superior bottling made so far. Bravo! Now-2019+
