I rarely buy more than one bottle of ANY wine even if it's great...I've now bought 4 bottles of this riesling...this wine distinguishes the difference between one note american riesling (which should never be rated over an 89) and true German rieslings which are symphonies of fruit...this wine is just a mouthful of fruit...a super riesling at a very reasonable price.

The WS review says it well: a real mouthful of peach, apricot, and lime, and an intriguing creamy texture on the tongue. More than off-dry, this vintage is halfway to sweet, even though it's been taken to 8% alcohol (per the label). I'm enjoying it all by itself, but it should go really well with mild-to-sharp cheeses, and spectacularly well with a nice brie.

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.

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.

Incredible purity, with shocking flavors that race across the palate - honeyed tangerine, white peach, lemon custard and refreshing, stony mineral. Explosive and clean; the way Riesling was meant to be enjoyed. Pair with seafood, cheeses or Thai cuisine.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

A light and minerally Riesling, racy and spritzy with flower and smoky flavours coming from the slate soil. It has an almost electrifying acidity, which asks for the next sip. This Kabinett is very delicate and appealing to drink.
