Ürzig produces wines of a completely unique nature, showcasing the typically exotic fruit flavors of the “spice garden,” with a rich texture, gentle acidity and lingering finish. Grosses Gewächs (GG) means “great growth” and is the designation for an estate’s best dry wine from a Grosse Lage (grand cru) vineyard. This “great growth” Riesling is from a parcel of extremely old vines (“alte Reben”) that lies directly behind the village and is still referred to by its historical name, Urglück (“original luck”).
