St. Urbans-Hof Riesling Kabinett Ockfener Bockstein 2007
A very nice wine. Low in alcohol (8.5%), so don't expect it to get you drunk. The lower alcohol makes the wine lighter in mouthfeel than others. Opens with a really nice nose - golden sugar baked pears. Its off dry, but counter balanced with a nice spritz of acidity. Honeysuckle and green apple flavors dominate on the slightly tart finish. Exhibits really great balance. There's some light oily, smokey, character - it is Riesling... But, its still a delicate wine. Very nice.Add winemaker's notes

External Reviews for St. Urbans-Hof Riesling Kabinett Ockfener Bockstein
Upon release this wine is truly showing incredible richness. The fruit is citrus driven with stone fruits. The acidity and mineral tang give this delicious Riesling incredible balance. It's off-dry (meaning not bone dry) on the palate and truly a mouthwatering white wine.
Reminiscent of old fashioned apple pie, where the baker let the heirloom apples show their natural acid and sweetness. Yet another outstanding Saar wine from Nik Weis.
A stellar selection from one of our favorite German Riesling producers. Lithe and elegant, with beautiful peach, green apple and racy lemon-lime fruit notes. With excellent focus and a strong mineral and citrus background, the St Urbans-Hof is a winner for many fish and chicken dishes, as well as pasta salad or fresh veggies.
A vivid Riesling that crackles on the palate with fireworks of black currant, violet, lime and slate. There's also a savory aspect that lingers on the finish. Best from 2010 through 2020.
Orange blossom, lemon, smoky crushed stone, and pungent lavender are mingled with slight yeastiness in the nose of Weis's 2007 Ockfener Bockstein Riesling Kabinett, whose relatively high 9% alcohol (a legacy of sheer ripeness) does not prevent it fulfilling its duty as Kabinett to be delicate and engagingly juicy. Fresh apple and a lick of salt in the penetrating, pungently zesty finish enhance the refreshment offered by an excellent value that will no doubt give pleasure for close to a decade.
Deep in color, offering floral, tangerine and mineral aromas and flavors. Though light-bodied and bright, this is concentrated, with a lingering, orange-infused aftertaste. Drink now through 2018.
Fresh apple and orange take the lead in Weis's 2006 Ockfener Bockstein Riesling Kabinett, which like their entire crop from Ockfen, was picked late this year. Hints of brown spices and citrus zest add interest to this delicate, bright Kabinett, and its juicy finish offers welcome ripeness, savory salinity, and hints of wet stone. This little model of Saar refreshment and impeccable balance, as usual, represents very good value.
