The Wine’s Story
When tasting this deep and stunningly complex Riesling from the Uhlen Roth Lay vineyard, we think of a German equivalent to Burgundy’s Corton-Charlemagne! This is broad and layered with an immense mineralic spine racing thru on the never-ending finish. Needless to say that our allocation will always be limited as production from this site is scarce, so we strongly recommend pre-booking here. A few magnums will be offered as well.
