In 2016, Lauer nailed it with Unterstenberg.
This may be the most precise and multidimensional Unterstenberg that we've tasted.
The Unterstenberg is at the bottom of the mountain. It is a warmer, more protected site that produces profoundly mineral and broad-shouldered wine.
What makes the 2016 Unterstenberg stand out is the unusual amount of refinement and grace that it delivers. It shows a brilliant, driving minerality that's beautifully lifted.
The 2016 is saturated by slate and possesses a gorgeous sense of agility. There's a crystal-clear presentation of complex citrus, herbs and gentle spices. It's a textbook example of Lauer's signature of delivering intensity and lightness simultaneously.
As we taste more and more of Lauer's 2016s, we're convinced that it's a very strong, and absolutely lovely, vintage for them. The 2016 collection excels when it comes to transparency, poise and appealing texture.
I'll wrap this up. Lauer's Unterstenberg has been a vital part of our Riesling program since the 2007 vintage. The 2007 is drinking beautifully today. We created special 4-pack pricing for the 2016 because this is a wine that you'll want to drink in quantity and stash away for the years to come.
