Riesling Urziger Wurzgarten Spatlese (White Capsule) Molitor 2016 (750ML)
95 Points, Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Riesling Ãœrziger WÃ¼rzgarten SpÃ¤tlese (White Capsule) offers a deep and complex yet delicate and discreetly flinty nose with a very fine, fresh and bright citrus and stony aroma. Full-bodied, intense and lush on the palate, this is a silky textured, highly elegant and superbly balanced WÃ¼rzgarten with an intense and powerful, very mineral and salty finish. The wine reveals great complexity along with serious grip and tensioned length but keeps its great finesse. Fermented and aged in large oak barrels until the bottling in September 2017. Tasted March 2018." 3/18
93 Points, David Schildknecht, Vinous: "Here is a gorgeous example of delicacy allied to flavor intensity and luscious fruit allied to savory mineral notes. Scents of fresh strawberry and lime anticipate the brightly juicy impression on a polished, buoyant palate. Lily-of-the-valley and rowan waft throughout, casting a memorable floral spell. The sweet-saline savor of raw scallop tugs at the salivary glands on a superbly sustained finish. Bear in mind that we're talking here about a dry Riesling (okay, perhaps legally halbtrocken - I neither checked nor cared) with only 10.5% alcohol! " 1/18
94 Points, James Suckling: "A big ripe wine with intense smoky and spicy notes. Although it only has 11% of alcoholic content, this is almost too much of a good thing. The power surging right through the dramatic finish. Drink or hold." 6/18
