"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. Spätlese 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."
