ÜRZIGER WÜRZGARTEN RIESLING SPÄTLESE
Ürziger Würzgarten produces wines of a completely unique nature. The wines showcase the typically juicy and precocious fruit of the “spice garden” vineyard, with a rich mouth feel, zippy 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 hang time gives them higher ripeness and deeper flavors.
THE 2018 VINTAGE
The 2018 Mosel harvest was the earliest ever recorded, but this we also had an early budbreak and flowering, so the development period for the grapes was still within the ideal target range. The harvest was characterized by good yields, healthy fruit at the beginning of harvest, and very good quality. As the harvest progressed we were able to produce an excellent range of dry wines, as well as wines from every Prädikat level, from Kabinett to Trockenbeerenauslese.
