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. — 10 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.

Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese Riesling 2005

I’m getting a real taste for these delicious aged rieslings. This is the second bottle of this vintage I’ve had, and man - it was rocking. It’s in such a perfect place right now. Ripe acidity balanced with the sweetness of honey, caramel apple, brûlée’d peach, kerosene and lilac flower. I’m making a mental note to buy more for the cellar. Despite the wait, these are too good to rob your future self of their pleasures. Yum. — 4 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.
