93 points James Suckling
"This is a very juicy, but also a pretty complex spätlese with masses of berry, herbal and spicy notes. Beautiful balance, but it needs a bit of time but you don't need to hurry before 2030."

"Fresh strawberry and lime laced with cress offer a bracing aromatic and palate impression, and bright, infectious juiciness carries into an invigoratingly zesty and mouthwateringly salt-tinged finish. As befits Riesling of Mosel origins, wet stone runs like a cantus firmus through this entire delightful performance, whose supportive sweetness knows when to back off in the interest of clarity and refreshment." (DS) (6/2017)
"Tank sample. Dense and spicy indeed! Very winning and juicy. Old style in a way… 17/20 points."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Blazing red and insanely steep, the Ürziger Würzgarten (ERTS-ih-ger VERTS-gar-ten) vineyard fills the picturesque amphitheater formed by this dramatic bend in the river. Although it’s directly adjacent to the vineyards of Erden, it produces a completely different kind of wine, with exotic, spicy aromas and a mesmerizing earthiness. No other vineyard on the Mosel produces wines so bursting with tropical fruit flavors. The estate’s oldest vines are found here.
