Ried Ulm is, for me, always the most profound and the most texturally exciting of Wieninger’s single vineyard Gemischter Satzen. This is no exception, from the riper 2019 vineyard. The aromatic varieties in the vineyard show a lovely floral lift on the nose and the palate. The fruit is ripe and spicy, but nicely offset by the salty, leesy body of the wine, and its superbly long and detailed finish.
Achieving this balance and drinkability at 14.5% ABV is, I’d say, a testament to the fanatical biodynamic work in the vineyards.
