2016 Merkelbach Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Spatlese 'Urgluck' #9, 750ml

Availability: In stock (2)

A highly exceptional, off-dry very low ABV and intensely mineral Riesling from the Mosel Valley. Made by two brothers, one is 82 and the other 78, never married and winemaking for ever 60 years and 7th generation in the same house. Check it out this great article on the brothers from the wholesaler, Skurink. Alfred took over the estate at 14 years old, come on! Fruit, spice, rocks, just an otherworldly expression of of the noblest grapes ever grown.

From the mouth of the importer (Terry Theise):

"This is a single parcel under its cadaster name. One wonders how Mosel wine ever improves on this. Ore, ginger, quince, garrigue, with the para-slate force that feels almost druidic; it’s adamant, spicy, it’s Bach really, mystic. It’s a taser of slate. "
