Maximin Grunhauser Herrenberg Auslese Versteigerung Fuder 17, Maximin Grünhaus - Weingut der Familie von Schubert 2016

Tasting Notes

The 2016er Herrenberg Auslese Nr. 17, the result of painstaking selections, yielded less than 300 liters from fruit harvested at 120° Oechsle. It offers a gorgeously elegant nose of pineapple, apricot blossom, cassis and fine spices as well as a whiff of volatile acidity. These are joined by riper and more exotic aromatics including mango and passion fruit after some airing. The wine is gorgeously vibrant yet unctuously creamy on the palate. A great kick of acidity comes through in the finish making this a stunningly elegant expression of Auslese lange GK.
