    The clear and fresh, citrus-yellow colored 2017 Uhlen Blaufüsser Lay shows a beautifully fine and intense bouquet of perfectly ripe Riesling berries with crunchy slate aromas and a tropical touch. Full-bodied, intense and enormously salty on the palate, this is a very fine and long Uhlen with sexy fruit and elegant texture. Crystalline but lush and assertive, this has grip and tension and a remarkable intensity. Another great wine from winemaker Kathrin Starke and her boss Reinhard Löwenstein. Tasted during the preview of the GG wines in Wiesbaden in August 2018.

    Very concentrated, but the sleekest and most filigree of this producer's trio of single-terroir wines from the Uhlen site. The blue slate of these terraces has given this a lemon and mint character, plus just a hint of peach. Very long finish that feels almost weightless.
