External Reviews for St. Urbans-Hof Riesling Qba
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.
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.
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.
Yeasty fermentative notes on the nose of Weis's 2008 Ockfener Bockstein Riesling Kabinett reluctantly recede to reveal site-typical orange blossom and apple. This is certainly a genuinely light-weight Kabinett, with both efficacious acidity and bitter hints of fruit pit and apple pip balancing its residual sugar in an invigorating dynamic.
Offers enticing peach, apricot, lime, and slate aromas and flavors, with a touch of vanilla cream. Creamy, yet bright and pure, with persistence and a complex finish. Drink now through 2025.
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.
