"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."

"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."

Dr. Loosen

VINEYARD: Ürziger Würzgarten is located in far western Germany, the Mosel valley’s steep, southfacing slopes. Planted on Red slate and red volcanic sandstone. Spätlese is produced with grapes that have a week or two extra hang time, but still without any botrytis.

FERMENTATION: Cool fermentation in a combination of stainless steel tanks and traditional Fuder barrels; fermentation stopped by chilling to achieve a Medium Sweet wine.
