Winemaker Notes

Aromas reminiscent of yellow peach, nectarine, mango, lime-tree blossom, mace, cinnamon, glove and flint stone. Complex mineral structure with a vibrant and tensional acidity, full bodied, juicy, rich with a long lasting finish.

Pair with nougat filled curd cheese dumpling with preserved spicy oranges and vanilla ice cream or brillant savarin with spicy peach relish and French baguette.

Critical Acclaim

WS 94
Wine Spectator

Plump and silky, this Riesling offers black currant, slate and peach flavors, with a hint of licorice. Fleshy and harmonious, turning more saline and stony on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2035.

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

The Molitor 2007 Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Spatlese smells of fresh strawberries and honey; comes to the palate with strawberry chiffon like delicacy and airiness yet a subtle oiliness of texture; and finishes with refreshment, lift, and almost ethereal purity of fruit. This may not be hugely complex, but what uncanny balance it shows! I would expect to remain fascinating for 15 or more years.
