St. Urbans-Hof’s 2009 Piesporter Goldtropfchen Riesling Spatlese smells of musk melon, pink grapefruit, and lightly caramelized apple, along with a rather odd brininess that I can only describe as anchovy-like. Intense salinity along with alkalinity, animal muskiness and effusively ripe fruit thus dominate on a palate of enveloping richness and caressing softness, if one possessed of less sheer refreshment than the best wines of its collection. This product of St. Urbans-Hof’s ungrafted section of Goldtropfchen vines will be fascinating to follow but I would revisit it in another year or two before handicapping its aging potential.
