The 2013 Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Auslese *** (Golden Capsule) has such a pale citrus color with a greenish hue as well as a pure, precise, fresh and cool, flinty, lime bouquet that you won't imagine it could be an Auslese. It is one of the finest and purest Ausleses I have ever tasted here. From the small Kranklay parcel located directly on Mosel river and adjacent to the famous Erdener Prälat and from vines which are partly old whereas the very olds are un-grafted, Markus selected this eternal beauty with its fascinatingly precise, laser-sharp lime and rock perfume quite late. "But even then there was almost no botrytis," he says adding that "the berries's skins just had a cut through which they were concentrated." Despite its high degree of concentration and sweetness, the ***-Auslese is superbly delicate and elegant on the palate, displaying fine raisin flavors mixed with the piquancy of the volcanic soils and a breathtakingly fine acidity. Grapefruit, pineapples and lemon aromas are present, along with extremely subtle honey flavors. This transparent and divinely balanced Auslese is lovely, juicy and always piquant and the acidity could hardly be finer. I can hardly find a good reason not to score this memorable wine 100, except its youth. This is surely a breathtaking Wunderwerk of precision.
