This is an extrovert Mosel GG with a ton of spice and berry aromas that are just beginning to open up. At once succulent and elegant on the palate, it manages to be complex and easy to understand, the finish very long and pure. Drink or hold.
Wine Tasting Notes
Urzig produces wines of a completely unique nature, showcasing the typically exotic fruit flavors of the "spice garden," with a rich texture, gentle acidity and lingering finish. Grosses Gewachs (GG) means "great growth" and is the designation for an estate's best dry wine from a Grosse Lage (grand cru) vineyard. This Riesling GG is from a special parcel of old vines ("alte Reben") that lies directly behind the village and is still referred to by its historical name, Urgluck.
