- 2016 Alfred Merkelbach Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Spätlese Halbtrocken Fuder #7 - Germany, Mosel Saar Ruwer (4/16/2019)
"A prime example of what I call “hidden sweetness” – residual sugar playing a supportive and catalytic role while not engendering any overt sense of sweetness – this will perform brilliantly at table as well as in your cellar.” David Schildknecht - I pasted this last part of DS's review on this same wine that perfectly encapsulates the perception of how the sweetness translates to the drinking experience; not troken nor Kabinett, it was very unique and damn tasty. Almost clear in color, I loved the smoky peach notes with biting grip. My first Halbtroken, my first Merkelbach, they won’t be my last. Yowzers. (92 pts.)

Merkelbach is old school Mosel Riesling. Amazing producers. Get the wines while you can. The brothers are not getting any younger.

Don’t think I’ve ever seen a Merkelbach halbtrocken for sale. I plan to look, thanks!

Well priced too, this was all win. Can't wait to try the standard Spat, I have the 16 UW Spatlese #6 in the batters box.
