This 2007 was purchased when Uwe was in DC years ago, pouring samples at Peter Wygandt's store. It is labelled as "Vörösbor Vaszkeresztes Vashgey" on the front label and Sudbergenland on the back.
This poured w a surprisingly deep, ruddy purple. Aromas are complex with a concentrated/desicated dark berry fruit note and some savory, earthy, tertiary bottle depth. Tannins are resolved in this medium bodied wine. It is deeper and more concentrated than I remembered. — 20 days 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. — 5 months ago

They let me have a light box shot! Woot!
Baby Kupfergrube GG here. What a nose. Wow. Just sickness. 9.4 off the bat. Confectionary. Creamy. Peach. Rainer cherries. So clear and refined. Very expansive and airy. Peach fuzz. Barely ripe peach skin and pith. Just a terrific nose. Palate is so elegant and fine. Just as mineral as the Vom Schiefer but it caresses rather than bludgeons. Really classic, refined and again, that gut H intense, refined and complex minerality. Really mouthfilling and a lovely intense mineral roundness. Structured and intense. Very long and finishes super saline and salty. — 5 months ago
This 'trocken' Grauburgunder is more like a Mosel kabinett Riesling than an Alsatian Pinot Gris. It's even got a bit of that kerosene note on the nose, quince and a bit floral (jasmine?). The finish is dry (just), tasty white grapefruit flavours, good acidity. As a fan of Riesling and PG, I like this. — 4 months ago
