    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 Alte Reben Riesling 6pk 2016

    Still a bit leesy (it was just bottled) but there really is an old vine intensity here and the mineral character is way more intense than most wines claiming to be made from old vines. Another wine with great aging potential although it is already delicious.

    Under VDP rules, this is officially the estate’s Ortswein (village-level bottling), but in keeping with its name, genuinely old vines are favored, which results in a dominance of Abtsberg over Herrenberg. Like the bottling now known as “Monopol,” this is finished at the low end of legal Halbtrockenheit and thus tastes essentially dry. Apple and white peach are laced with fresh lime on the nose and on the firm, juicy palate. Impressions of peach fuzz and lime peel lend invigoration without drying the palate, and the similarly stimulating piquancy of apple seeds and peach kernel remains on the right side of bitterness. The finish is downright vibratory and plenty refreshing, introducing an appropriate wealth of stony, smoky and crystalline impingements.
