Ratings and Tasting Notes:
JS=95 Stoney nuances, such as chalk, flint, white pepper and nutmeg come to the fore. Lightly off-dry with impressive balance to the acidity and a chalky, cutting texture of lemon and grapefruit pith. Drink now or hold.
WA=93-95 The 2018 Maximin Grünhaus Abtsberg Riesling Superior is very intense and concentrated on the deep, mineral and highly impressive nose. Lush and generous, with a creamy texture and quite a bit of sweetness (15 grams per liter), this is a crystalline, tight woven, very long and lush Abtsberg with enormous power and concentration. The wine needs some years to reduce its baby fat but, it is full of promise. Tasted from AP 9 19 in June 2019.
WS=92 This shows a core of juicy fruit, featuring mineral details midpalate, balanced by a generous amount of acidity. Citrus, nectarine and floral details are consistent and harmonious. Stays firm and complex on the mouthwatering finish. Best from 2022 through 2031. AG=91
