    As one of Germany's oldest wineries, the history of this iconic estate dates back to 966, when wines were mainly made for the nearby Monastery. Fast forward to now, Carl von Schubert and his son Maximin are leading the estate in the fifth and sixth generation today, carefully managing three of the most highly regarded Grand Cru vineyards in the region: Abtsberg, Bruderberg and Herrenberg.

Press Review

    Grünhaus Abtsberg Riesling (GG) 6pk 2016

    Enormously deep and complex although it's feather light. There's no point in listing the aromas that are only beginning to emerge, but I must stress that you need to wait until at least 2019 and suggest that you remember Nietzsche's words: you look into the abyss it will look back into you! Will age through 2050.

    Grünhaus Abtsberg Riesling (GG) 6pk 2016

    Site-typical scents and flavors of white peach and lime gain from sea breeze and mouthwateringly savory accents in a bottling fuller in feel (albeit only marginally higher in alcohol) than the corresponding Herrenberg, and – again, site-typically – more vividly underlain with wet stone. There is a welcome sense of transparency to the finishing flavors reminiscent of Grünhaus Riesling at its (dare I say “old time”?) best. In characteristic fashion, Abtsberg here offers a serenely static counterpart to the Herrenberg’s nervous energy. I hope my quantified estimations of ageworthiness prove overly conservative.
