this is lovely stuff- nicely balanced with a strong floral nature to the wine on the nose and palate that I really liked. good grip and persistence.
Nose of yeast, minerals, and mild citrus. Flavor was fresh, simple, fruity with pleasingly sour finish. Acid was comparatively low. Lightly sweet.

Very pale straw color. Nose is white grape (go figure), white flowers and citrus. Taste was dominated by tangerine with pineapple rounded out with a little stone. Not overly sweet, I initially thought this might be a Spaetlase, and acidity is very refreshing. Very tasty wine, but comparing to other Ausleses I've had, have to score this in the high eighties.
External Reviews for Von Schubert Maximin Grunhauser Abtsberg Riesling Spatlese
Mouthwatering citrus and green apple flavors are chiseled and vibrant in this crunchy Riesling. Chives and green herbs are well-defined and accent the minerally essence. Chamomile notes enliven the finish. Drink now through 2030.
This is supple and lush, the lemon notes taking on a cream-like richness, the minerality rounded and smooth. The finish takes on a red tone, like raspberries and red earth, firming up and lasting.
Subtle aromas of apricot, quince and sweet basil. Seductively unctuous mirabelle flavor complicated by piquant saline minerality. The youthfully compact, spicy finish displays enormous length. A great effort and one of the finest spatleses of the vintage.
Features rich, savory herbal notes that flank an unctuous core of ripe apple and melon flavors. Supported by firm acidity, this is balanced and lushly juicy, crackling on the finish with tarragon cream. Drink now through 2022.
Very pure and racy, delivering apple, pear and white peach flavors, with loads of mineral notes. The lithe, spice-charged finish features notes of sea salt and mineral. Drink now through 2040.
White peach, hyacinth and clover on the nose. Subtly sweet papaya fruit and a hint of lime on the palate, with a creamy quality held in check by crisp minerality. Seductive riesling with a penetratingly spicy finish.
Flavors of peach and mineral are accented by white pepper in this racy white. Perhaps not as complex or luscious as its peers, yet this is focused and delicate as only the Mosel can be. Long finish. Drink now through 2028. 200 cases made. -BS Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Riesling wine from Mosel Saar Ruwer in Germany. 2009 Von Schubert Maximin Grunhauser Herrenberg Riesling Spatlese 750ml
