2019 Dr. Loosen Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling GG
The original Ürziger Würzgarten is the only site on the Middle Mosel that is not characterized by slate. The soil is called Rotliegendes, a red, weathered conglomerate of volcanic origin. As the name suggests, we have very different aromas here than in the slate-dominated sites with their stone fruit aromas. In Würzgarten wines we often get spicy, herbal and slightly earthy aromas, along with captivating, exotic fruits. The wines are full-bodied, with acidity that comes across a bit softer and rounder due to the buffering of the special soil. The Ürziger Würzgarten is the broad-shouldered wrestler among our wines in terms of its power and structure. The ungrafted vines from which we produce this great Riesling are up to 120 years old. They are located in a plot called “Untrest Pichter,” which rises directly behind the Village in the heart of the Würzgarten.
