SKU #1400795 94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A brilliant wine full of juicy, soft dried mango, dried pineapple, honey and citrus juice acids. It has lovely balance despite its not insubstantial 71.7g/l of residual sugar. Drinking Window 2019 - 2036 (JB) Inner quote mark (5/2019)

93-94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Impressive concentration and subtlety with an intense character of peaches, wild strawberries and herbs. The juiciness extends right through to the long and spicy finish. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (6/2018)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Spätlese offers ripe nectarine and peach aromas on the clear nose with crunchy/flinty slate notes. It is lush and salty-piquant on the palate, with a firm but crystalline structure, creamy texture and good grip on the finish. This is an open, lush, mouth-filling and promising Spätlese that should be cellared for a decade. Tasted in March 2019. (SR) 93+ Inner quote mark (6/2019)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark White grapefruit and a touch of fresh mint perfume this juicy, lavishly fruity wine. It’s lusciously sweet yet zesty, balancing primary lemon and tangerine flavors against streaks of lime and slate. A satisfying, mouthwatering spätlese, enjoy now–2030. *Editor's Choice* (AI) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

K&L Notes

91 points Mosel Fine Wines: "AP: 21 18. The 2017er Ürziger Würzgarten Spätlese was harvested at 87° Oechsle and fermented down to 66 g/l of residual sugar. It offers a beautiful nose made of vineyard peach, cassis, elderflower, passion fruit and some laurel. The wine is on the sweet and delicately creamy side on the otherwise nicely focused palate and leaves a nicely fruit-driven feel of whipped cream in the juicy finish. The ripeness of the wine comes through in the apricot and pear-infused after-taste. 2027-2042." (10/2018)
