Grapes for the Dr Loosen Urziger Würzgarten Riesling Spätlese are taken from the blazing red and insanely steep Ürziger Würzgarten vineyard, which fills the picturesque amphitheatre formed by a dramatic bend in the river. It produces wines with exotic, spicy aromas that are bursting with tropical fruit flavours. The estate’s oldest vines are found here.

Rainer’s laser focus in the vineyards is on full display in this Steinwiege Riesling, which shows great varietal purity and expression of terroir. Sebastian Fürst is perhaps best known for his Pinot Noir wines, but the Franconia region also produces terrific Riesling, grown on stony soils the Fürst Riesling pur Mineral is fermented bone dry and displays a real elegance and pure minerality, hence: pur mineral!
