    Winemaker's Notes:

    Aromas reminiscent of roses, white peach, mango, lime-tree blossom, mace, glove and flint stone. Complex mineral structure with a vibrant and tensional acidity, full bodied, juicy and rich.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This ripe, forward style is lush and creamy, displaying lots of ginger, peach and sea salt note. Finishes with notes of smoke and apricot. Drink now through 2020. 600 cases made.

    Strawberry preserves and vanilla icing in the nose of Molitor’s 2009 Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Spatlese create confectionary expectations for its palate performance that are not disappointed. In addition, decadent lily and heady gardenia perfume seem to hang over this unabashedly sweet Riesling whose buoyancy approaches weightlessness. A lip-licking, quickening streak of salinity helps counteract this lush yet delicate wine’s finishing sweetness. I would lock it away for a decade and then anticipate at least several years of further satisfaction, but those with a sweet tooth will find it more enticing in its youth than do I.
