Single-fuder. That's 110 cases, ideal for someone to just buy it all. This stand-alone cask shows wonderful substance and length, with a richer fruit now. SOMMELIER ALERT! SOS: 1 (7-19 years)

Wine Advocate

A Merkelbach 2008 Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Kabinett A.P. #21 - representing only a single, hundred-case fuder - leads with green tea, fennel, and mingles wet stone and faintly bitter herbal elements with apple and kiwi on a loose, marginally ripe, yet refreshing palate. The sweetness is the last thing you notice here, and even in its youthful state if you are unprejudiced I suspect you'll find more to do with it than merely sip it summers on its own, and I am sure it will prove enjoyable for more than a decade.

Score: 87. —David Schildknecht, December 2010.
