Ungeheuer Riesling 2015

Lyle Fass
9.4

Been about a year. Lovely, expressive nose, citrus, tangerine, pink grapefruit, salty minerals, an airiness, class and depth. Chewy, textured and super mineral. Wow. Awesome concentration and purity. Deep, mouth coating and very elite. Really expansive and pure. This has picked up weight and depth in a year. Chewy, dense and structured with lovely minerality and a playful citrus core. So so long. Fantastic. — 6 days ago

👄 This wine is dry and medium bodied. The acidity is high. The alcohol is medium. This wine has pronounced intensity of flavors including tart green apple, lemon peel, lime, apricot, passion fruit, gooseberry, wet stone, and honeysuckle. The finish is medium(+).
.
.
Quality of this wine is very good. It is very good because it has strong balance of acidity and fruit characteristics. It has a good length and intensity of aromas. It could be improved with greater complexity and tertiary flavor development that would increase the honeyed and dried fruit flavor potential. This wine may be consumed now, but will benefit from more time in the bottle.

Erdener Treppchen Spätlese Mosel Riesling 2016

Touch of petrol, lemon and lime, pear, apple, and candied peach. Cracking lip smacking acidity that intertwines with the residual sugar, then after the long finish the flinty minerality shows slightly. Super fun to drink — 9 days ago

Ürziger Würzgarten Kabinett Mosel Riesling 2019

Another Dr. Loosen Kabinett, this time from Graacher Himmelreich, that after my foray into German Riesling a few weeks ago I was very excited to try. The conditions were laid of a Wednesday evening, a ‘send-off’ meal for my sister before she departed for university, and she elected for us to have an Indian takeaway. And hence, one of my most memorable food pairings was conceived: this wine, with fish pakora and raita sauce. No joke. Genuinely phenomenal. The wine continued to pair well with the main course and was beautiful on its own after the dinner. Notably less sweet, I thought, than the 2018 Wehlener, and totally quaffable.

Hook me up to this stuff on an IV drip.

Wehlener Sonnenuhr Kabinett Mosel Riesling 2018

This is only my second ever German Riesling, the first also (I think) being a Kabinett that I tried, as a relative newbie to wine as a whole, some seven or eight years ago - and hated. But something about Germany’s bottomless pit of wine styles, and the fierce delineation of its vineyards, appeals to me, and as someone who drinks far more old- than new world wine, it was about time I popped a cork and dived in.

In short, this was an immensely enjoyable wine - particularly on the second night. Rough notes from the night as follows: apricot, apple tart, a slight petrol note, petrichor, and a saline edge, with passion fruit lining the finish. The smell reminds me of boat trips in Greece - diesel engines combined with fresh sea salt, I guess. Immediate tangy impression on the front of the tongue that lasts through the finish. Very ripe and linear. Medium acidity in this off-dry style.

I’ve now massively got the bug. Anyone got some Spätlese they could lend?
