2016 Heymann Lowenstein ‘Uhlen Blaufusser’ GG Riesling

$119.00

Region: Mosel, GER

Variety: Riesling

Farming: Sustainable

'While unfettered pleasure is the reflex response elicited by classic Mosel Riesling, the often overt power and disorienting range of Heymann-Lowenstein tends to be more thought-provoking. Reinhard Lowenstein views his craft as a creative interplay between climate, soil, vine and grower, culminating in wines that are singular, authentic and complex.

The descriptor Trocken is banned from his vocabulary and anybody foolish enough to enquire about levels of residual sugar is duly and properly chastised. He probably considers the alcohol content another irrelevant detail in the greater scheme of things, but the law is an ass and requires that information to be given. What matters to Lowenstein is terroir, and tasting his wines from different plots within the same vineyard, his credo is convincing.' — Michael Schmidt, jancisrobinson.com

'This offers a gorgeous nose of candied grapefruit zest, some star fruit, ripe pear and apple, all wrapped into the telltale classy touch of fine spices and herbs so typical of the Estate. The wine is medium-bodied on the palate and leaves a beautifully pure, spicy and mineral-loaded feel in the long and delicately powerful finish. This is a gorgeous wine in the making with a hint of power and nice saltiness in the after-taste.' — Mosel Fine Wines
