"Fresh strawberry and lime laced with cress offer a bracing aromatic and palate impression, and bright, infectious juiciness carries into an invigoratingly zesty and mouthwateringly salt-tinged finish. As befits Riesling of Mosel origins, wet stone runs like a cantus firmus through this entire delightful performance, whose supportive sweetness knows when to back off in the interest of clarity and refreshment."

WINE
2015 Loosen Ürziger Wurzgarten Riesling Spatlese
Dr. Loosen

Literally translating to "The Spice Garden of Ürzig", this wine hails from the weathered red volcanic and slate soils of the Ürziger Würzgarten (pronounced ERTS-iger VERTS-garten) vineyard, which makes it quite unique in the Mosel. It is an incredibly steep site that yields wines with an exotic, spicy aroma and earthiness. The Loosen estate’s oldest vines (up to 120 years old) are found here.

Spätlese (“late-picked”) means that the grapes get a week or two of extra hang time for higher ripeness and deeper flavors than a Kabinett.
