Maximin Grünhaus Pinot Noir
A concentrated yet elegantly refined Pinot Noir grown in the blue slate soils of the Grosse Lage (grand cru) Abtsberg vineyard.
The von Schubert family’s dream to bring top-quality Pinot Noir back to Grünhaus was realized in 2007, when one hectare of Pinot Noir (Dijon clones 777 and 828) was planted on one of the steepest parcels of the Abtsberg vineyard. Another half-hectare parcel was planted a year later. Following classic maceration and fermentation in open stainless steel vats, the Pinot Noir spends 18 months in French and Austrian oak, as well as locally made barriques from the estate’s own oak trees. The result is a complex and elegant Pinot Noir, that clearly expresses its kinship to the Grünhaus Rieslings.
