A beautiful harmony runs through this big, lush, refreshing wine. A rich, creamy texture and clean slate notes balance intense peach and lime. Great density of flavor and fresh, lively fruits will surely make this your new favorite springtime sipper.
Semi-sweet with flavors of gooseberry, grapefruit, and black currant. The refreshing acidity gives this wine structure and the ability to age gracefully.
Delicious, this is a veritable cascade of minerals, custard, lime and spice packed into a sleek frame. Creamy, yet vibrant, it ends with a lipsmacking tang. Drink now through 2009.
The fresh, lively mouthfeel and crisp lemon, grapefruit and green apple flavors more than make up for an offputting sulfur smell when the bottle is first opened. Airing it before tasting, or aging it another six months or more should be all the help it needs.
A big Kabinett, in the sense of its intense aromas and flavors of peach, lime and slate, weaving throughout a creamy texture. Itrsquo;s dense yet sinewy, with a wonderful sense of harmony. Fine length, too. Drink now through 2015.
An elegant and delicate Riesling with a strong mineral structure. The flavors are like that of exotic fruit such as mango, papaya and gooseberry. It has a refreshing effervescence and an earthy, smoky nose.
St. Urbans-Hof, named for Germanyandrsquo;s patron saint of winemaking, was founded in 1947 by the grandfather of currant owner-winemaker Nik Weis. The estate comprises about 80 acres of vineyards, including a prime 15-acre portion of the renowned Bockstein, completed in 2009 with the purchase of the last 2.5 acres of Zickelgarten, considered to be the best parcel of Ockfener Bockstein. St-Urbans-Hofandrsquo;s other great site, Piesporter Gold-trandouml;pfchen, usually garners the higher ratings, but in andrsquo;09, Bockstein stars.
