Markus Molitor Ürziger Würzgarten Kabinett 2016
The "Ürziger" site is traditionally considered to be a specialty among the Middle Mosel vineyards due to its red iron-rich soil mixed with fine slate. This gives the grapes grown here a totally distinctive character, with spice and opulent fruit as well as a crisp, hearty acid backbone, which produces a tremendously full-bodied wine when combined with emphatic residual sugar.
It opens with a deep, complex and smoky/flinty bouquet of ripe stone fruit aromas, crushed stones and sweet herbal flavours. Silky textured, round and lush, this is a full-bodied, highly elegant, finessed and stunningly complex Wurzgarten Kabinett. Perfect balanced, with a great, beautifully pure and salty finish and immense aging potential.
