93 Points Wine Advocate - The 2016 Maximin Grünhaus Abtsberg Riesling Kabinett has a deep and seriously flinty bouquet with ripe and concentrated—but not showy—Riesling aromas. Lush and mineral on the palate, this is a mouthwatering and super juicy Abtsberg with a salty-crystalline and crunchy palate. Tasted March 2018.
The 2016 was bottled with 12 grams per liter and tastes just perfectly dry and fruity. In general, the 2016s represent the classic "Grünhaus style"—beautifully airy, light and elegant Grünhaus Rieslings of great finesse. I haven't tasted any better collections here for years and can only recommend to buy as many 2016s as possible. The leaner, more moderate but highly attractive nature of the vintage—which, luckily, didn't cause much loss in Grünhaus—served the classic Grünhaus style perfectly.
