2014 Rings Riesling Ungsteiner Weilberg GG


The Ungsteiner Riesling is from a rare type of very iron rich loamy soil called Terra Rossa, found in only a few places in Germany. It has palate staining breadth and richness that is given a fine sense of shape from weightlessly counterbalancing acidity. Classy and delicious. From their website: “This site enjoys one of the longest traditions in the Palatinate. It is here that the Romans first brought viticulture 2000 years ago. The heart of the Weilberg consists of ferruginous loam, called “Roterde” (“Terra Rossa” or red earth). Slightly smoky aromas. On the palate, aromas of mature mirabelle, rich and opulent, yet vibrant with a distinct acidity. Of impressive length with a long, spicy finish.”

“From a warmer, well protected vineyard in Ungstein — and thus picked a week earlier than the Steinacker — the 2014 Riesling trocken Weilberg offers a very clear and delicately aromatic fruit on the nose, which is followed by a round, very elegant, mineral, lovely, juicy and full-bodied palate with a long, complex finish. This Riesling from iron-rich Terra Rossa soils is full of vitality, but also sensual fruit. Forty percent was aged in 600-liter barrels and all parts were kept on the full lees until shortly before bottling in May 2015. Highly recommended. ” 91 points Stephan Reinhardt
