Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Riesling from Dr. Loosen opens with a white peach bouquet with a hint of ginger. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, pleasantly acidic, off-dry and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a very tasty white peach and lime blend with hints of minerality, green tea, ginger and a dash of white pepper. The finish remains slightly sweet and delicate. The Panel suggested drinking this very nice summer sipper Riesling on its own. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Urziger Wurzgarten produces wines of a completely unique nature. The wines showcase the typically juicy and precocious fruit of the "spice garden" vineyard, with a rich mouth feel, zippy acidity and lingering finish. Spatlese is produced with grapes that have a week or two extra hang time, but still without any botrytis. The extra hang time gives them higher ripeness and deeper flavors.
