The Ruwer valley is a little overlooked, and that’s quite sad, as the best producers Maximin Grünhaus and Karthäuserhof makes some very fine wines. The Eitelsbacher Karthäuserhofberg Spätlese 2001 #2702 is a very good example of the Ruwer qualities. The bouquet is open, with loads of minerality, grapefruit and cassis.

Well done.
