As one of Germany's oldest wineries, the history of this iconic estate dates back to 966, when wines were mainly made for the nearby Monastery. Fast forward to today, fifth and sixth generation Carl von Schubert and his son Maximin are leading the estate carefully managing three of the most highly regarded Grand Cru vineyards in the region: Abtsberg, Bruderberg and Herrenberg.

Brilliant water like colour with a greenish tinge around the outskirts. Aromas of ripe limes, red apples and citrus are trailed by hints of honeysuckle, quince and light mineral. Fresh and pure, lime, red apple and subtle honeysuckle flavours fill the mouth over traces of quince finishing dry to off dry and minerally. Good length with a medium to long conclusion.
Drink over the next 2-3 years.
Alc. 11%
