Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Auslese*** ‘Kranklay’, Christoffel

“This is always from the same parcel, and it cannot produce more than forty hectoliters per hectare,” says Hans-Leo. “We‘ve had at least Spätlese from this site in every vintage except 1991. I could make these wines heavier, but it goes against my philosophies. The day I can‘t make wines like these any more is the day I‘ll pack it in.” It‘s down below, to the right of the sundial, in case you want to locate it.

Tasting Notes

Hails from the cadaster parcel from which the “3-star” came. It fits the “system” in being spicy, angular and savory. Glossy and sophisticated. — Terry Theise
