Dr. Loosen Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Spatlese, Mosel 2019
|Availability:||In stock (5)|
The insanely steep, red-soil Ürziger Würzgarten vineyard produces wines of a completely unique nature in the Mosel valley. The wines showcase the typically juicy and precocious fruit of the “spice garden” vineyard, with a rich mouth feel, brisk acidity and lingering finish. Spätlese is produced with grapes that have a week or two extra hang time, but still without any botrytis. The extra time on the vine gives them higher ripeness and deeper flavors.
94 James Suckling - Generous and spicy, but with very racy acidity and a long, energetic finish that's super crisp. So food-friendly, in spite of the obvious, natural-grape sweetness. Drink or hold.
90 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - The 2019 Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Spätlese is fine and subtle on the pure, herbal and crunchy/stony nose. Classy on the first palate, this is a sweet, piquant, racy and stimulatingly salty Würzgarten Spätlese that is still terribly young and needs some years to soften and gain finesse.
