    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2010 vintage on the Mosel is producing some of the best wines of the decade as it has combined very ripe fruit with higher acid levels. The 2010 Ürziger Würzgarten (Ürzig is the village and Würzgarten means "spice garden") is no exception. The aromatic floral notes on the nose lead into lush tropical fruits on the palate that meld with the signature hint of spice that comes from the red volcanic soil. This is all capped off by bright acidity. Drink now with spicy meals, cheese or dessert or lay it down for 15 years and have it with wild game.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very creamy, with a bright acidity behind the peach, gooseberry and elderflower flavors. Ripe apricot and vanilla chime in as well, with lime and slate lingering on the broad, rich finish. Drink now through 2035. 250 cases imported.

    Peach, mango and a hint of honey on the nose. The sweet, but austere peach flavor with its subtle spiciness is highlighted by the slate. Well-balanced, extremely elegant and nicely persistent.
