Dr. Loosen Urziger Wurzgarten Spatlese 20 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The Loosen 2006 urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Sptlese smells of fresh strawberry and brown spices with subtly smoky inflections. Peachy richness and a hint of white raisin on the creamy palate signal the wines advanced ripeness and an element of botrytization. The sweetness here seems as usually adeptly judged but there is a faintly prickly and drying botrytis-induced note in the finish which some might argue could have been covered over by higher residual sugar. Still this opulent ripe Sptlese is bound to impress. RP.

The Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for over 200 years. When Ernst Loosen (pronounced loh-zen) assumed ownership in 1988, he realized that with ungrafted vines averaging 60 years old in some of Germany’s best-rated vineyards, he had the raw materials to create stunningly intense, world-class wines. To achieve this, Ernst dramatically reduced his crop size and stopped all chemical fertilization, preferring only moderate use of organic fertilizers. And, most importantly, he turned to gentler cellar practices that allow the wine to develop its full potential with a minimum of handling and technological meddling. Read less
