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.

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.

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.

Nik Weisrsquo;s virtually-dry ldquo;negociantrdquo; 2009 Urban Riesling mdash; sourced from Mehring mdash; scatters apple blossom and clover in the nose; comes to the palate leesy and almost a bit lactic yet refreshing, brimming with apple and musk melon juices, pungently citrus-zest-tinged; and finishes with a genuine sense of stone and fruit interplay. Plan to enjoy it over the next 2ndash;3 years.
