Luckily the wines are pretty easy to get.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.

Had a 2012 Loosen Urz Wurz "Fischerei" this week that I really enjoyed.

    A little petillance of youth, big blast of apple fruit, quite sweet, excellent acidity. At this stage the best apple cider ever, but of course there is also nice minerality, a bit of strawberry if you look for it (from a portion of the vineyard with different geology than the rest). Liked more than any Loosen wine in quite a while.
    A pleasure now, undoubtedly different pleasures to come.
