Incredible nose. Fresh herbs, grapefruit, peach, currant, and slate practically leap from the glass. On the palate this wine displays amazing complexity, harmony and sophistication of flavor. It is sleek, yet intense and fleshy, with a superb cut and length. Remarkably approachable for a young von Schubert wine; a candidate for Spätlese of the vintage.

This even smells taut, its minerality fighting to keep the fruit under wraps. With air, the fruit wins out, unleashing gentle white peach notes through to a jazzy shock of crisp red apple. For aging at least five years.

Good depth and richness here, yet balanced by soft acids, minerality and spice. Hints of kerosene spark the aromas, which also boast ripe apple and pear notes. Baked tree fruit on the palate, wrapped in minerals and spice, yet not overly heavy.

Rich aromas and flavors of white peach with a hint of rhubarb and honey tinged with herbs and wet stones lead to a quite honeyed, rich, satiny palate emphasizing melons peaches and rhubarb, but shot through with bracing citricity. The finish here is entirely convincing with a pure and refined colloquy of fruit and mineral as well as a combination of richness and invigorating brightness that one associates with a long and venerable line of highly ageworthy Abstberg Spatlesen.

Lemon, lime, pear, white peach and a touch of passion fruit. Quite firm in the mouth, with intense fruit yet a nice touch of austerity. Finishes with a palpable load of slate and enormous grip.

Whether they are from Alsace, Germany, Austria or New York's own Finger Lakes, it is no secret that my favorite wines are Rieslings. A perfect example of how great a Riesling can be: 1997 Maximin Grunhauser Abtsberg Riesling. Graceful and delicate, yet bursting with yummy stone fruit and honey flavors, with a touch of spice and a long tangy finish. It is no wonder this wine scored 91 points in both The Wine Spectator and The German Wine Guide (Armin Diel and Joel Payne)!
