Dr. Loosen Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Spätlese
A rich, exotic Riesling with an electric, spicy tingle from the iron-infused red soil of the hyper-steep “spice garden” vineyard.
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.
