One of the most important Grand Cru vineyards of Mosel!

Why do we love it?

Dr. Loosen Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling 2019 is one of the best and most fabulous Rieslings you can try without spending a fortune (94 pts by James Suckling and 92 pts by Robert Parker). Its name means "the spicy garden of Urzig" and it is one of the most important Grand Cru vineyards of Mosel!

The Urziger Wurzgarten vineyard is one of the oldest vineyards on Mosel. Imagine that vines’ age exceeds 130 years. At the same time, its soil is volcanic and rich in red granite, a fact that contributes to the intense mineral character of the wine and its tremendous concentration. The grapes are picked by hand, the wine is then fermented with ambient yeasts and matured for at least a year in large, old, and neutral barrels. After bottling, it matures for another year in the bottle.

The result cannot be described in words… The wine has such a structure that you cut it with a knife, dense tropical fruit, sharp acidity, and intense mineral character. Now it is unbelievable but if you have patience until 2031 it will have become simply mythical!

If we, were you, we would get at least 2 bottles of Dr. Loosen Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling 2019!

Grilled sea bass with spicy soy sauce

  • 2 seabasses (500 grams each), with guts and scales removed
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • a handful of fresh herbs (rosemary, oregano)
  • 2 lemons or 1 orange
  • 10 g of fresh ginger in thin slices
  • Extra slices of lemon or lime for serving
  •  For the sauce
  • 2 tbsps. of olive oil
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 to 1 fresh hot pepper, in thin slices (depends on your preferences)
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. of sugar

Preheat your barbecue or light the charcoal. Gut the fish, remove the scales, and wipe it well. Make 3-4 vertical, to the bone incisions on each side of the fish. Brush the fish, in and out, with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, in and out. Put in the fish's belly some fresh herbs and slices of lemon or orange. Put slices of ginger in the incisions you made earlier.

Place the fish in a baking pan. After the bbq is ready or after the grill has warmed up well, bake for 5-7 minutes and then turn it on the other side for another 5 minutes.

For the sauce, place a small saucepan on medium to high heat. Add the olive oil and when it's heated up, add the garlic and the chili peppers. Cook for 30 seconds. Add the soy sauce and sugar and allow to boil for 1 minute.

 Pour the sauce over the fish and serve with slices of lemon.
