Notes of spice and crushed earth abound in this intensely ripe but classic expression of the red-slate slopes of Ürziger Würzgarten. Delicately sweet and delightfully tropical, it balances rich, ripe melon and pineapple flavors against a zippy spine of lemon acidity. The finish is long and smoky. Delicious in youth but should evolve beautifully through 2035 and hold longer still.

Generous and spicy, but with very racy acidity and a long, energetic finish that's super crisp. So food-friendly, in spite of the obvious, natural-grape sweetness. Drink or hold.
