Merkelbach Riesling.

Discussion in 'UK Wine Forum' started by GeorgeParkinson19, Jul 24, 2020.

  1. Hello,

    Thanks to the help of the forum i have started to build on my Mosel collection. I often come across new producers and can easily find reviews etc.

    I have stumbled across some 2016 Urziger W, Spatlese and cannot find a review.

    Are people familiar with the producer? Any other views would be welcome.

    Thank you

    George

  2. The person to ask is Jasper, who used to import Merkelbach’s wines to the UK. The Merkelbachs in those days were two very old brothers. I had many a bottle and they were generally brilliant at the (very low) price. I have no idea whether the operation is still the same but if I were you I’d probably take a punt. I think the only bottles I have left are 2001 auslesen, post Jasper’s involvement.
     
  3. The Merkelbachs these days are even older brothers! I am happily drinking 2005s and 2007s (Kabinett and Spatlese). Never quite a top address but delightful people, delicious wines and exceptionally inexpensive in those days. I dont think much has changed.
