The Wine Company


von Winning Ungeheuer Riesling Grosses Gewachs 2021

Good grief this is fine Rioja of seasoned hardwood incense and campfire, rich ripe brambly fruit, full black plums, vanilla bean, a leathern savory note and the anticipation of a cedar sauna. 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, 7% Mazuelo and 3% Graciano grown in the chalky terraces behind the best Riojan offerings, all marry into a rich and rounded whole thanks to barrel fermentation, 24 months in oak casks, and another year in bottle. As they say at Muga, “This is a wine packed with character and with an evolution which recalls the magnificent 2005 vintage.” In my humble opinion despite my love of the '05 this is even better.
