Carl Loewen Riesling Maximin Herrenberg GG 2020


From ungrafted vines planted in 1902 and spontaneously fermented in Fuder. Traditional and simple winemaking gathers together all the grace, and charm and refined power of the Mosel. Maximin Herrenberg spices of clove and aniseed, tonic herbs, salt and seaweed. Masses of fruit, and extremely complex in that there are yellow, citrus, green, tropical and black fruits, with the spice and herb mix threaded through. Some very subtle texture, so not textural, but it brings a squeeze of ginger and mustard that only kicks through on the finish. Utterly remarkable and unique. Waters Wine Co

This Mosel masterpiece shows such an abundance of beauty and grace and it’s easy just to sink into the wide range of perfectly ripe stone-fruit aromas. Then the finish emerges, like a whale rising from the depths to the surface of the ocean, leaving you breathless. Drinkable now, but best from 2023. 97pts James Suckling

The 2020er Maximin Herrenberg GG, as it is referred to on the front label, comes from un-grafted vines planted in 1902 and was fermented spontaneously and aged on its gross lees in traditional Fuder cask for 6 months. It offers an aromatic and attractive nose of anise, pear, grapefruit, yellow peach, blackberry, apricot blossom, and plenty of herbs and a touch of camphor. The wine comes over as ample, supple, and almost smooth at first on the palate, before quite zesty and herbal flavors of lime, ginger, and pear kick in. It leaves one with some earthy and salty elements in the in the fully dry finish. This rather aromatic and ripe expression of dry Mosel Riesling will need a few years in order to integrate its tartness and reveal its full complexity. 2024-2028+. 92pts Mosel Fine Wines
