On the nose, the Maximin riesling has a playful fruit aroma. Green apple, a touch of raspberry and elegant citric notes combine with subtle elderflower hints. On the palate are ripe citrus fruit and yellow stone fruit flavours, with slate spice nuances and a defined, characteristically Mosel acidity. A charming, moreish wine with a light and refreshing finish.

The `Maximin` range is the introduction to the Grünhaus portfolio that offers inviting wines at superb value. In addition to Maximin Grünhaus' grapes grown in the Herrenberg vineyard, a portion of the fruit is carefully sourced from trusted growers in the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer valleys that share the estate’s ethos and exacting standards. The soil types vary, but are dominated by the famous blue and red Devonian slate that impair a delicate minerality and a charming lightness to this range.

Located on steep, south-facing slopes two kilometres from where the river Ruwer meets the Mosel, the estate of Maximin Grünhaus has a history of viticulture that dates back to Roman times. It takes its name from the Abbey of Saint Maximin, a Benedictine monastery which owned the land from the 7th to the 18th century. Passing into French administration under Napoleon and then eventually to the von Schubert family in the late 19th century, the estate is now overseen by sixth-generation family member Maximin Von Schubert, who took over from his father Carl Von Schubert in 2014.
