Still fresh and fruit-driven after fifteen-plus years in the bottle with nicely-balanced notes of sweet, fresh white peach, dried granny smith apple and tangy lime zest. The spice notes the vineyard is famous for have softened with time but are still present: faint cinnamon, nutmeg and white pepper that linger on the finish.
The Berres family has resided and worked in the vineyard of Urzig since the 1510. Upon secularization of the Mozel by Napolean, one of the first great private wine estates to be established was that of Peter Nicolay in Urzig, and it included some of the finest sites in Germany. Through marriage and inheritance, the Nicolay property was renamed C.H. Berres after Carl Hubert, and it continues to produce and market the estate’s wine under that name today.
