Wines from the Abtsberg vineyard have always been some of the most sought-after in Germany. Translating to “hill of the abbey”, these grapes were destined for the table of the Abbey of St. Maximin. 2019 was a year that we did not produce our iconic Beerenauslese, so the most concentrated grapes of the vintage have gone into this Auslese bottling.
95 Points, Mosel Fine Wines: "The 2019er Maximin Grünhäuser Abtsberg Riesling Auslese was made from clean fruit which was fermented down to noble-sweet levels of residual sugar. It offers a rather backward but very precise nose made of almond cream, pear, elderflower, apricot puree, grapefruit, ginger, mint, and smoky slate. The sensation of precision carries over onto the palate, where the creamy flavors of apricot, almond, pear and even a hint of dried fruits are beautifully whipped up by some citrusy and grapefruit-infused acidity. The after-taste is gorgeously racy and alluring. This terrific, incredibly subtle Auslese GK-styled wine only needs some patience for its zesty structure to blend with its creamy elements. What a success! 2029-2049"
