Wine Review: This pale straw colored Spätlese level Riesling from Maximin Grunhaus opens with an initial sulfur bouquet which quickly swirls off to a candy corn and dried apricot bouquet with hints of ginger and pink lemonade. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, creamy, balanced, smooth and slightly sweet. The flavor profile is a tasty cream soda laced with lemon, white peach ginger and honey. We also picked up hints of pineapple and white tea. The finish is pleasantly sweet and drift away nicely. The Panel collectively agreed that this was a Riesling to enjoy and drink on its own. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The Abtsberg Spätlese 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.
