“Burgundy has Grand Crus, Bordeaux has First Growths, and Germany has Grosses Gewächs. These bone-dry, single-vineyard marvels are bottled in the smallest of quantities and greedily snatched up around the globe. If you crave high-end Burgundy complexity but aren’t always thrilled with the prices, Winning’s Ungeheuer Riesling will change your life.” – Ian Cauble, Master Sommelier


96/100 – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“Tasted as barrel sample in November of this year, von Winning’s 2021 Ungeheuer Riesling trocken VDP. Grosse Lage is deep, very fine and clear on the elegant and balanced saline nose that is nothing less than spectacular in its seamless and pure appearance. Round and lush on the palate, with a salty piquancy and a dense, still yeasty texture with very fine tannins, this is a generous and complex Riesling from the famous Forster Ungeheuer that has been appreciated from wine geeks such as Johann Wolfgang Goethe, Otto von Bismarck and Robert M. Parker Jr.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Tasting Note: The Ungeheuer of Forst is one of Germany’s most famous vineyard sites. Riesling from here was poured at the opening ceremony of the Suez Canal in Egypt in 1869. The soil is based on sandstone with an ancient coral reef and volcanic basalt on top. Fermented and aged in 500l oak barrels for 10 months. Dry apricot, earthy notes, and a hint of smoke on the nose resolve on a palate that is balanced and lengthy, with a strong umami character to balance out the flinty minerality and extremely restrained stonefruit character. This wine explodes on your taste buds and remains there with a never-ending echo.
