Blazing red and insanely steep, the Ürziger Wurzgarten (ERTS-ih-ger VERTS-gar-ten) vineyard fills the picturesque amphitheater formed by this dramatic bend in the river. It produces wines with exotic, spicy aromas that are bursting with tropical fruit flavors. The estate’s oldest vines are found here.
Urziger Würzgarten produces wines of a completely unique nature. The wines showcase the typically juicy and precocious fruit of the "spice garden" vineyard, with a rich mouth feel, zippy acidity and lingering finish. Spatlese is produced with grapes that have a week or two extra hang time, but still without any botrytis. The extra hang time gives them higher ripeness and deeper flavors.
