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.
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.
2019 Herrenberg GG [03 20] (GRUN10219A)
A lean, smooth, very fine wine with pithy citrus and juicy fresh green notes, plenty of salty flinty mineral flavours and a very long fine finish lasting for minutes.
2019 Abstberg GG [16 20] (GRUN11219A)
More powerful than the Herrenberg, with greater density and weight. There is a lovely juicy green freshness, ripe yellow pear fruit and a pithy, very fine ripe slaty minerality on the long finish.
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.
2018 Abtsberg Spätlese [06 19] (GRUN32218C)
Very forward and approachable this year with is a burst of complex fruit – honey, melon, gooseberry and a hint of tropical – as well as a powerful floral note, but this is more than matched by the dense mineral character and vibrant ripe acidity. And despote all this going on, the wine never breaks a sweat: it is smooth and seamless right through to the long finish.
2019 Herrenberg Auslese [09 20] (GRUN40219A)
You don't get more precise and typical than this impeccable Auslese: cool herbal notes, pears almost a stemminess at first, and then as the wine unfolds a little bit of botrytis comes into play, lending a juicy raisined and spicy quality, followed by a very finely-woven salty minerality emerging on the long finish.
2019 Abtsberg Auslese [12 20] (GRUN42219A)
Picked at the same ripeness level as the Herrenberg, but here the fruit is mellow and yellow, with considerably more botrytis. It has the density of a Beerenauslese, but remains light and elegant, with zingy citrus acidity and a long, seamless mineral-driven finish.
