Tasting note

2020 Markus Molitor Ürziger Würzgarten Kabinett Goldkapsel

Pale lemon yellow. Wonderful bouquet of white peach, wild strawberry, and mandarin, plus creamy and herbal notes. Lightly reductive. Slightly less intense than I remember from both the 2016 and 2018 vintage, perhaps a little closed down at the moment. Richly textured mouthfeel. Soft and creamy with a good acidity that offers structure. Fresh apple, mandarin, orange, sweet pineapple. Fruity in style with the herbal touch so typical of the Ürziger Würzgarten. Long finish. Needs more time to fully open up.

Drink from 2027 through 2047.
