2020 Winningen Uhlen Blaufüsser Lay Riesling Grosses Gewächs, Mosel, Germany

A touch developed, deep and quite complex, herbal-vegetable stone fruit-citrus scent with black berry aromas, lots of fresh marjoram, a little smoke and metallic-mineral notes. Ripe, juicy, somewhat sweet fruit, lively acidity and lots of grip, clearly black berries on the palate, nutty flavours and a hint of liquorice, also aniseed in the background, good substance and persistence, some depth, rather dark minerality, smoky nuances, has plenty of tension at first, then only becomes sweeter and softer with air and picks up again on the third day, firm, sweetly juicy, herbal-spicy and again clearly mineral finish with grip. A chameleon.
