The Maximin Pinot Blanc is fresh and tangy with aromas of kiwi, blossom, honeydew melon, and white grapefruit. On the palate, it surprises with flavours of nuts and bananas, and a hint of white pepper. The acidity is harmoniously integrated with a delicate minerality on the tingling finish.

The `Maximin` range is the introduction to the Maximin Grünhaus portfolio, offering inviting wines that represent superb value. In addition to Maximin Grünhaus' Pinot Blanc 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 type varies, but it is dominated by the famous blue and red Devonian slate that impairs 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.
