Product Description

Dr. Loosen 2016 Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Spatlese hails from the weathered red volcanic and slate soils of the Urziger Würzgarten vineyard, which translates to "The Spice Garden of Urzig". It is an insanely steep site that yields wines with an exotic, spicy aroma and a mesmerizing earthiness. The wines from this vineyard showcase the typically juicy and precocious fruit of the “spice garden,” with a rich mouthfeel, zippy acidity, and lingering finish. There is no other vineyard in the Mosel valley that produces wines so bursting with tropical fruit flavors.

93 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Spätlese (AP 53 17) is clear, fresh and intense on the nose. This is a rich and lush, super juicy but also piquant and crystalline Spätlese with mineral grip and tension. The finish is extremely mouthwatering and salty. Beautiful." -SR, 4/27/18

(92-93) Points - Vinous
"Mint-laced fresh strawberry and lime on the nose morph into a delectable strawberry and lime chiffon on the palate, thanks to a combination of delicacy, subtle creaminess and refreshing primary juiciness. A hint of nutmeg enhances the rich sense of advanced ripeness on exhibit here alongside animation and brightness. Marine mineral suffusion serves for saliva-inducement on a lusciously persistent finish. The next sip is simply irresistible. (This was bottled ahead of the 2017 harvest but not until after my late July 2017 visit.)" -DS, Jan/2018

92 Points - Wine Spectator
"Harmonious, with prominent slate details adding to the crunchy texture, while apricot, pear and chamomile tea aromas and flavors provide a charming aspect. Tangy acidity makes this refreshing and delivers a long, lingering finish. Drink now through 2031. 500 cases imported." -AZ, 2/28/18

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Ripe, rich tangerine, apricot and peach pulsate through this light-bodied yet powerfully fruity spätlese. It's unctuously concentrated yet balanced by spine tingling acidity and a murmur of lime zest on the finish. Delightful already but likely to improve further through at least 2030." -AI, 4/1/18
