2015 Markus Molitor Ürziger Würzgarten Kabinett Riesling Green Capsule (Off-Dry) Mosel

SKU #131631494 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2015 Riesling Ürziger Würzgarten Kabinett (Green Capsule) is based on the same grape quality as the dry Kabinett and opens with a deep, complex and smoky/flinty bouquet of ripe stone fruit aromas, crushed stones and sweet herbal flavors. Silky textured, round and lush, this is a full-bodied, highly elegant, finessed and stunningly complex Würzgarten Kabinett. Perfectly balanced, with a great, beautifully pure and salty finish and immense aging potential. Gorgeous! (SR) (4/2017)

Outer quote mark A faintly yeasty, cheesy fermentative overlay to the nose dissipates with aeration. Behind that emerges a site-typical amalgam of lime and strawberry, which then inform the palate with a chiffon-like sense of delicacy allied to richness of flavor. Cooling mint, pungent coriander seed and invigoratingly incisive cress lend delectable appeal to a long finish transparent to alkaline and wet stone notes that serve for fascinating counterpoint. The very discreet sweetness here is entirely supportive, and I would be delighted if Rieslings displaying this one’s balance were once again considered classic examples of Mosel Kabinett.

Outer quote mark Very clean and crisp with plenty of herbal character and a hint of caramel. Very good now, but will be equally delicious any time through 2025. Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

Winery Notes: "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."
