Wine Review: This pale straw colored Spatlese level Riesling from Maximin Grunhaus opens with a faint white peach and apricot bouquet with a hint of honey. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, pleasantly sweet, round and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty mild pineapple and white peach with notes of lemon and delicate minerality. The finish is slightly sweet and drifts away nicely. The Panel suggested pairing this Riesling with striped bass or swordfish kabobs. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The Abtsberg Spatlese is a selection from vineyard parcels harvested late in the season. The longer hang time produces more fully developed aromas and flavors, and greater complexity. The Abtsberg vineyard is one of the greatest sites in all of Germany, with wines characterized by a fine structure, subtle minerality and great delicacy.
