Description

Blazing red and insanely steep, the Ürziger Würzgarten (ERTS-ih-ger VERTS-gar-ten) vineyard fills the picturesque amphitheater formed by this dramatic bend in the river. It produces wines with exotic, spicy aromas that are bursting with tropical fruit flavors. The estate’s oldest vines are found here.
92 Points Tasting Panel - Silky with a lively tension between sugar and acid; polished with a lengthy finish; another Ernst Loosen masterpiece from a dramatically-steep vineyard.

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.

90 
Points Wine & Spirits - A crystalline wine, this tastes of lime and mineral water, with a firm acidity to keep the ripeness in line.
