Wine of the week


1999 Karl Erbes Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling-Kabinett. Mosel-Saar-Ruwer ($12). Urziger Wurzgarten is one of the most distinctive vineyard sites in Germany -- if not the world. Here, the riesling grape takes on a distinctive flavor of fresh strawberries, which combines with the more typical Mosel nuances of slate, nuts, citrus, apple and pear. The Erbes wine is a glorious example of what the Urziger Wurzgarten (Spice Garden of Urzig) can produce when the wine is made in a lightly sweet kabinett style. The wine is crystalline, racy, structured and finishes with refreshing acidity. It can be drunk on its own or served with seafood or spicy Asian cuisines. Imported by Chapin Cellars, Springfield, Va.
