Editorial Reviews for St. Urbans-Hof Riesling Spätlese Ockfener Bockstein
A lot of sulfur here, it pretty much obscures the nose. Nicely Spatlese on the palate, though the sulfur is distracting here as well. This is fresh and lively with bright acidity lending a fresh citrus element to the more quince paste-toned flavors of the mid-palate. The finish shows a nice green edge, lime with a hint of herb accenting the fruit and nice length. Once this sorts itself out it should merit a higher score, but today the sulfur obscures a bit here. 85pts
External Reviews for St. Urbans-Hof Riesling Spätlese Ockfener Bockstein
A beauty, this '01 Riesling reeks of slate and exotic spices. It picks up candied citrus and tropical fruit notes on the palate, worn on an ethereal frame. Wonderful harmony and expression of site. Drink now through 2010.
A big backbone of slate and spice supports the lovely tropical fruit found in this Riesling. Candied lime and peach combine to showcase the fresh and ripe fruit this vineyard is capable of. St. Urbans-Hof has once again put on a great show for wine lovers.
Subtle bouquet of pineapple, pine nuts and lemon oil. Luscious yet crisp papaya fruit shows a refreshing mineral character. Deceptively light and wonderfully easy to drink, this spatlese is just plain fun.
A powerful Riesling with floral notes, such as elder flower and lilac combined with a juicy, fruity acidity. It has a silky structure reflecting the grand terroir of the famous Ockfener Bockstein vineyard.
Very expressive. Aromas of smoke and mineral introduce peach and mango flavors in this racy white. Lean and tensile, with a long peach and savory aftertaste. Best from 2010 through 2030.
Delicious in a modern, reductive style. A touch of CO2 and lively acidity spin the floral, lime, peach and mineral flavors around the delicate framework. Fresh, lingering finish. Drink now through 2012.
Displays very spicy aromas, with a hint of flowers and savory elements. This is firm and tight, offering the vivid structure that drives its raisin, cinnamon and nutmeg flavors. Finishes with a flourish of apple and slate. Drink now through 2030.
