The red slate and volcanic soils of Ürzig produces wine s of a completely unique nature. The wines showcase the typically juicy and precocious fruit of the “spice garden,” with a rich mouth feel, zippy acidity and lingering finish. “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.
The hallmarks of the 2011 vintage in Germany are purity and balance. Ideal weather during harvest produced wines with an enormous fruit aroma and a dense texture on the palate, all held in harmonious balance by fine, focused acidity. This dense, lush Spätlese gets an extra dimension of volume and power from the very old vines. It will need some time in the bottle for its earthy minerality to fully express itself.
"Racy and well-structured, with some tropical fruit overtones of mango and fresh pineapple to the core of grapefruit and Key lime flavors. Pastry notes are accented by creamy elements on the long, rich finish. Very bright. Drink now through 2026."
