MAXIMIN GRÜNHAUS/von SCHUBERT (Mosel) 2015 Part I: Dry and Off-Dry Wines, and 2014 Spätburgunder

Dr. Carl von Schubert said that at the beginning of October, he found the acidity still too high, so had to wait a week to begin harvesting. Overall yields for the estate were 45 hl/ha. 

Although in dry vintages, Herrenberg can actually be better in Abtsberg, in this vintage, for me, it is Abtsberg that has the slight advantage, although the Herrenbergs are outstanding in their own right.

Simply beautiful wines here. Note especially the first two GG wines that the estate, newly returned to the VDP, has produced. (Continue reading here.)
