Markus Molitor Ürziger Würzgarten Spätlese is a single varietal white Riesling made by the Markus Molitor winery.
The Ürziger Würzgarten Spätlese is made from grapes harvested in October in the magnificent Ürzig vineyard, located in the Bernkastel sub-area. For the Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Spätlese, the grapes are harvested exclusively by hand at optimum ripeness, avoiding the use of machines that may be less selective. Once harvested, the grapes are quickly transported to the winery, where they are carefully sorted and crushed.
Fermentation takes place in large wooden barrels at controlled temperatures. After fermentation, the wine is aged in oak barrels for several months.
