External Reviews for St. Urbans-Hof Riesling Qba
Very minerally and smoky, with concentrated flavors of baked apple, golden raisin and spice. The rich finish is spicy, with hints of cream. Drink now through 2014.
From famed German winemaker Nik Weis, the Urban Riesling is crisp and clean, full of ripe stone fruit flavors. Light bodied and refreshing, with just a hint of sweetness, it's perfect for accompanying grilled fish, light pasta dishes or veggie trays.
Lime, apple and a touch of mineral take on a hard edge by the finish in this compact Riesling. Enjoy it on the early side. Drink now through 2010.
The smoky matchstick aromas give way to floral, black currant and slate flavors in this alluring white. The structure emerges on the finish, so give this a little time to integrate. Best from 2009 through 2017.
Nik Weis, the man behind St. Urbans-Hof, turned to his neighbors in the Mosel to produce this crisp, mineral-inflected wine that shows the distinctive semi-dry flavors of mango, passion fruit and lime that have made Nik's wines famous.
A fruity nose of mostly peach and honey, although a hint of pear is present as well. On the sweeter side, but not without a good dose of minerality. Crisp, short finish.
Aromatic, exhibiting floral and leafy notes, turning to citrus on the palate. Firm and stony, with a dry finish. Very elegant and delicate. Drink now through 2013.
