Dessert Wine of the Month

Dr. Lippold 2012 Mosel Urziger Würzgarten Alte Reben Riesling Auslese

Enno Lippold’s pre-phylloxera vines in the Urziger Würzgarten turned out an exotically spiced Auslese in 2012. Scents of ginger root, cardamom and smoke play up the savory side of the wine, highlighting the mineral notes and nutty edge of maturity on the sweet apricot fruit. Rich yet restrained, this is long and intriguing, a wine to enjoy over a cheese course.
