Blazing red and insanely steep, the Ürziger Würzgarten vineyard fills the picturesque amphitheater formed by this dramatic bend in the river. It produces wines with exotic, spicy aromas that are bursting with tropical fruit flavors. The estate's oldest vines are found here.

Wine EnthusiastWhite grapefruit and a touch of fresh mint perfume this juicy, lavishly fruity wine. It's lusciously sweet yet zesty, balancing primary lemon and tangerine flavors against streaks of lime and slate. A satisfying, mouthwatering spätlese, enjoy now-2030.

Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Spätlese offers ripe nectarine and peach aromas on the clear nose with crunchy/flinty slate notes. It is lush and salty-piquant on the palate, with a firm but crystalline structure, creamy texture and good grip on the finish. This is an open, lush, mouth-filling and promising Spätlese that should be cellared for a decade. Tasted in March 2019.
