    Uhlen wines tend to develop concentrated fruitiness with a characteristic echo of sturdy mineral content. Protected from wind in a depression of the cliffs and girdled by trees, the vineyard forms an open amphitheatre facing south. Uhlen Roth Lay measures only 4 hectares. The soil is quartzy, dark-red slate, streaked with a light red ochre layer.

    Tasted from the barrel and still dusty in its ripe golden color, the 2015 Riesling Uhlen R 'VDP Grosse Lage' (which is always bottled late) combines super ripe, rich and intense tropical fruit aromas (pineapples) with the spicy flavors of red (iron-rich) slate. The palate, however, is stunningly pure and finessed, highly elegant and almost light whereas the finish is very long, full of salt, grip and tension. A great promise! 95-97 points.

    An enticing nose of fennel pollen, coriander, white peach and kumquat sets the stage for a silken-textured, expansive palate at once lush and piquant. The piquant elements are woven glowingly into the long-lasting finish here so as to maximize invigoration while avoiding outright bitterness, while green herbal essences lend a cooling aura. Underlying wet stone acts as a Mosel signature, and subtle salinity serves for saliva-inducement. I last tasted this from both casks of it in September 2016, and have tried to do justice to a composite impression in a single tasting note. The wine was due to have been bottled in the spring of 2017. 93-94 points.
