ARRIVING DEC 2019/ JAN 2020.
90+ points! The 2017er Ürziger in der Kranklei Spätlese comes from a Lieu-Dit situated in the prime sector of the Würzgarten adjacent to the Erdener Prälat. Aniseed herbs and smoke dominate the nose at first before riper notes of pear, quince, yellow peach and tar kick in. The wine reveals a gorgeously juicy side driven by mango, a hint of apricot and honeyed cream on the palate and leaves one with a rich, creamy and smooth feel with the presence of a full-blown Auslese in the long finish. This will need a good decade to integrate its sweetness but could then easily warrant an even higher rating if it gains in finesse. 2027-2047. Jean Fisch & David Rayer, Mosel Fine Wines June 2018.
