2016 Pinot Noir [24 18] (GRUN95216A)
The Pinot Noir from Grünhaus is becoming increasingly complex as the vines age, drawing a fine minerality from the slaty soils of the abtsberg. There is rich ripe red fruit with a savoury character and a hint of smoke, and a long powerful finish.
2017 Pinot Noir [21 19] (GRUN95217A)
10-year-old vines in the Abstberg are giving wines of increasing complexity. Frost severely reduced yields, and the very small berries have produced rich, juicy crushed red fruit, a distinct smoky note, firm fine tannins and a bitter chocolate finish.
2017 Herrenberg GG [17 18] (GRUN10217A)
A lean, elegant wine with energy and power. There are cool grassy notes and a fine clearly delineated minerality, and a juicy vibrant finish.
2012 Maximin Grünhäuser Abtsberg Superior [04 13] (GRUN16212C)
Intense peach, floral and herb aromas, complemented by gooseberry and creamy mineral flavours in the mouth. Very fine and fresh.
2017 Herrenberg Kabinett [12 18] (GRUN20217A)
Cool, green and vibrant, this shows elegant citrus and pear notes and a smooth pure minerality that makes it taste almost dry all the way to a fine finish.
2011 Maximin Grünhäuser Abtsberg Auslese Fuder 84 [08 12] (GRUN52211A)
From a parcel of particularly ripe golden berries. Bright, pure and long, but elegant rather than powerful. Pure mango and well-delineated mineral flavours mingle on the palate. Very long and fine.
2019 Riesling alte Reben trocken [02 20] (GRUN06219A)
Not a wine we usually buy, but the oldest vines in the Abstberg and Herrenberg did particularly well in the dry hot summer, and have produced a dense, cool, mineral-driven wine with notes of fresh herbs, pears and lively acidity, finishing smooth and long. Such finesse at this level is unexpected and a real pleasure.
2018 Abstberg GG [08 19] (GRUN11218A)
Old vines give a smooth, silky wine with heady floral and fresh herbal notes, rich yellow fruit, a juicy ripe defining acidity and a dark stony core building to a long creamy finish.
2019 Abtsberg Superior [18 20] (GRUN16219A)
The finest grapes of the Abtsberg, fermented with minimal intervention to near dryness. A dense, powerful wine, buoyed by lively acidity and a cool lean slaty mineral backbone, with typical notes of herbs and spice.
2019 Herrenberg Kabinett [06 20] (GRUN20219A)
Herrenberg has a better water supply than the Abstberg, and can shine in drier years. It certainly does in 2019: bright and vibrant, it is defined by cool green fruit and pure lean stony flavours, and the finish is juicy and long.
2018 Herrenberg Kabinett [03 19] (GRUN20218A)
Always a perfectly judged Kabinett from the poor soils of the Herrenberg: it is juicy and very elegant, the fruit cool and floral, and there is fresh pithy sweet grapefruit on the finish.
2019 Abtsberg Kabinett [08 20] (GRUN22219A)
More opulent than the Herrenberg, there is some yellow fruit to complement the classic herbal notes, and there is a little more charm to the fine minerality. The low yields lend density, and there is a beautifully judged interplay between ripe juicy fruit and lively citrus acidity.
2018 Abtsberg Kabinett [02 19] (GRUN22218A)
Ripe and generous but still featherlight, this is packed with dense yellow stone fruit, gooseberry and the herbal freshness so beloved by Grünhaus fans. It gets structure from the fine gentle smoky slate notes, and the finish is seamless, elegant and long.
2019 Abtsberg Spätlese [05 20] (GRUN32219A)
It’s all happening here: melting yellow fruit, herbs, beautifully fresh ripe citrus notes, a silky slaty minerality. It is densely woven, and the pressure of the ripe vintage clearly in evidence, but it is balanced, playful, and delicate. In other words, it slips down a treat.
