Lot #993. von Schubert Maximin Grünhäuser Herrenberg Riesling Auslese 188 #21 2001

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 96 JG.
"This was the first bottle of 2001 numbered auslesen that I tasted from the Maximin Grünhäuser estate, and it is a botrytized beauty of the highest order. The bouquet soars from the glass in a beautiful blend of pineapple, apple, candied lime, ocean air, kaleidoscopic slatey minerality, floral tones and a fresh dollop of honey. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, complex and laser-like in its focus, with a great core of fruit, stunning acidity, and an utterly profound, endless finish. This will be a timeless legend that should begin granting access in only a couple more years, but last for forty or more. Stunning young auslese." John Gilman, View From the Cellar, May/Jun 2006, Issue #3
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $70
