Karl Erbes Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Spatlese Mosel Germany 2015
The Ürziger Würzgarten (Ürzig Spice Garden) is one of the steepest vineyards in the middle Mosel area with an ideal position to capture the rays of the sun and soak up some extra warmth reflected from the river. Unique to this site is the geological occurrence of red slate and red sandstone of volcanic origin. The mineral content of the rocks in which the vines grow is thought to have inspired the name Spice Garden. The singular wines that are produced here possess exotic and fruity aromas and have profound character, making this one of the world's foremost vineyards.
