Behind a yeasty, slightly cheesy note in the nose of the St. Urbans-Hof 2009 Piesporter Goldtropfchen Riesling Kabinett (what proprietor Weis euphemistically but perhaps also appropriately calls andldquo;the cocoonandrdquo;) comes a site-typical effusion of pink grapefruit, apple and banana, which go on to inform an expansive, polished, yet delicate palate. The longer this stands open the more expressive it becomes, with hints of citrus zest and crushed stone adding some punch to its impressive persistence. Despite its mere 8% alcohol, this does not taste overly sweet, offering a fine example of the potential this vintage for achieving andldquo;genuine Kabinett.andrdquo; I suspect this will be delightful for at least another 15 years, and assuming it breaks out of its andldquo;cocoonandrdquo; in timely fashion could become a real classic.

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.

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.

St. Urbans-Hof, named for Germany’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-Hof’s other great site, Piesporter Gold-tröpfchen, usually garners the higher ratings, but in ’09, Bockstein stars.

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.
