Outer quote mark Beautiful berry peach and herbal nose. Dry and elegant with serious depth for just 11% alcohol. Long, cool herbal-mineral finish. Better from 2018, but at least another decade ahead of it. Inner quote mark

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 Riesling Ürziger Würzgarten Spätlese AP 69 (White Capsule) opens with a very delicate and slatey/spicy Würzgarten bouquet with bright fruit and flinty mineral aromas. Round and lush on the palate but also with an enormously salty, complex taste and very finely chased acidity, this is a remarkably fine and elegant Würzgarten Spätlese of great purity and expression. I find it less reductive than the Saar Spätlesen but even finer and more transparent. 93+ (SR) Inner quote mark (2/2017)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The dry Molitor Würzgarten Spätlese (there’s also a sweet one, hence my reference to A.P. #) delivers a pungent nose and tangy brightness of fresh lime and kiwi. Brisk and (at just 11 percent alcohol) buoyant, like its Kabinett counterpart this puts the Würz in Würzgarten, delivering a finishing combination of marjoram, pepper cress, and crushed stone that leaves the palate scoured but invigorated and the tongue tingling. (DS) Inner quote mark (6/2017)

K&L Notes

Winery Notes: "The "Ürziger" site is traditionally considered to be a specialty among the Middle Mosel vineyards due to its red iron-rich soil mixed with fine slate. This gives the grapes grown here a totally distinctive character, with spice and opulent fruit as well as a crisp, hearty acid backbone, which produces a tremendously full-bodied wine when combined with emphatic residual sugar, particularly in our Spätlese wines."
