2013 Von Winning Forster Ungeheuer GG Riesling trocken

Share on Facebook

Sandstone Chalk rock and limestone and the sub soil was a coral reef, pebble next door and the volcanic next to that. This wine is part of the new GG designation, a bit of a shy flower on the nose with lemon blossom , salty mineral notes. A very tightly wound wine on the palate, tart green apple and lemon zest on the long finish, lots of tongue tingly minerality. Finish 50+ Most Excellent



94 points Stephen Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): "At this early stage, the citrus colored 2013 Forster Ungeheuer Riesling trocken GG (with lime green reflections) seems to be von Winning's most impressive Riesling of the vintage. Intense, ripe and piquant fruit aromas of limes and grapefruit on the nose lead to a very juicy and salty palate where an almost perfect amalgam of minerals and fruit juice gives a very elegantly structured, medium to full-bodied wine. Then comes a delicious finish followed by a persistent and piquant length. This is a great, bright and energetic wine, whereas the Pechstein and Kirchenstück are still very closed at the moment. (Oct 2014)"
