    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 Spätlese 6pk 2016

    Another stunning wine that combines power and elegance in a stunning way. The sweetness is there, but the more important thing is the mineral freshness that is really complex. Now or whenever you feel like until mid-century.

    Grünhaus Abtsberg Riesling Spätlese 6pk 2016

    The white peach, pear and white currant on display here offered a jellied impression of ripeness, sweetness and concentration such as I would have anticipated from an Auslese. The nose is effusive and the palate luscious, creamy and glycerol-rich yet delicate and shot through with enlivening fresh lime. As with a number of Grünhaus 2016s, there is an appealingly cooling aspect to this wine’s green herbal accents, while peach kernel and walnut offer piquant counterpoint to the wine’s overt sweetness and luscious fruitiness. In a surprising role reversal, this Abtsberg delivers the sort of vividly tactile sense of smoky and crystalline stony mineral impingement and vibrant sense of dynamic flavor interplay that I typically associate with Herrenberg.
