Maximin Grünhaus Herrenberg Riesling GG
A deftly structured and elegant dry Riesling from the red slate soil of the Herrenberg vineyard.
The Herrenberg vineyard is based more on red slate than its blue slate neighbor, the Abtsberg. It also has deeper topsoil that retains more water, which can be of great benefit in dry years. The wines are more generous and tend to open up sooner than those of Abtsberg, but are capable of equal longevity. Grosses Gewächs (GG) is the German term for a dry wine from a Grosse Lage (grand cru) vineyard.
