Bastei Großes Gewächs Riesling 2018

Lyle Fass
9.6

Wow. Deep, mineral, super complex aromas. Stunning. Love love this site. Pineapple, but juuuust ripe. Palate is massive, intense, superbly mineral and dry dry dry. Wow is this deep. The nose has a breadth and pungency that is trademark Bastei. Really dense and chewy. Barely ripe Meyer Lemon. Pulls off the sweet and sour thing so well. Delicate yet big. What a massive structure, depth and concentration. Sappy and structure to burn. Really takes over your mouth. This is glorious. Will likely greatly improve with air. What a looong finish. After air the nose gets that hand lotion. Sandy. Salty. Roundness to the nose. Backend is so young. Needs 5 years. — a month ago

GG’s here we go! What a nose. Dizzying mineral complexity. Huge vulcanized rubber. Peach flesh, rainer cherries, some apple honey, green apple, salt, flint. Hint of spice and fireplace. So so so good. Like an oily aspect. Soupy? But so fine, so delicate yet expansive and intense. Sickness. 9.6 nose. Stunning. And it will get better. Wow, what a massive step up from the lower wines. Unreal texture and refinement. Just sickness. This is very very high class juice. Massive minerality, massive concentration and stunningly pure. So so elegant yet it’s all one piece, like a finely tailored suit jacket. Nose keeps on expanding. So deep. Getting some Tolkien inner earth action here. Wow this is salty! Insane salinity, it dances so playfully. What a long finish. This is so exciting. Awesome finish that never lets go. Grippy. This is incredible and young but just a masterpiece. Might be a 9.7, but have more to taste, so might raise it later. Finish is 60 seconds. Sickness!! — a month ago

Wow. Heavenly nose. Gorgeous and starting to show mature notes. Candied, zesty lemon, mineral as all can be. Peach flesh. Apricot flesh. Deep, penetrating and profound aromas. Salty. Rocky. Smells like it sounds. The rock quarry. Wow. Dense, complex, insane inner mouth confectionary aromas, super clean, shows 15 richness but super textured and pure. Nose develops a woodsmoke dustiness. Gorgeous mature notes. So complex. 9.7 nose. Just unreal. Wow, what depth, richness and concentration. So salty and fine. Genius. Really classy wine. Ripe and concentration. A nice steely finish. — a month ago

Nose is light green apple confectionary notes, minerals. Nose closes down after 5 minutes. Palate is nice. Loads of green apple, very very German. Green Apple jolly rancher. Luscious, mousse is good but in the background. Good length. Chewy. Balanced, pure, high acidity but well integrated. Juicy. Decent length. Good cut. — a month ago

Hermannsberg GG Nahe Riesling 2018

Lyle Fass
9.6

Killer killer nose. White cherry Nahe love. Apricot, peach, spice, lanolin, vanilla extract. So pretty. So ebullient. Very open aromas. Herbs. Very complex. Very serene. Wonderful peach skin. Palate is massive, complex, tangy, refined and young with massive fruit skin and fruit pith flavors. Amazing purity and balance. Ripe but perfect freshness and minerality offset it. As it airs the minerality becomes more aromatically pungent. Really delicate but now also super mineral and saline. That sweet type of saline. Really long and delineated. Lovely structured finish. Really really long. Terrific. Really top level finesse with air and a terrific crystalline saline structure. Salty and long. Nose gets more pluot. As it airs slightly confectionary. — a month ago

Well they let me do a light box shot for the 7 terroirs but this one, despite it being the same grey background, is a no go for my light box shots. Sucks.

Anyway this wine doesn’t suck. What a nose. Confectionary minerality and spun sugar. Cotton candy through a Nahe lens. Stunning slatey minerals. Vulcanized rubber. Peach. Airiness, minerals galore, hint of flint and so expansive. A stunning nose. Keeps getting more nuanced. Wow what a palate. Huge minerals. Concentrated minerals. I love wines where fruit is an afterthought. It’s here but it’s an afterthought. Really long, really precise and really fine. So mineral. Like sucking on a wet rock. Really complex and just wonderful texture. Lots of pitter patter like a fine dust is left on your palate. Terrific vineyard peach now develops on the nose. This is a major major value. All fruit is from Niederhausen. This is the most Lyle wine ever. Man I love this. Just a bruiser of a mineral bomb.
