Like many Saar wines in 2007, this is rich and ripe, with fleshy notes of orange and stone fruits. It's backed by typically steely Saar acidity, giving it intensity and poise.

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.

This is refined, with flavors of peach, lime, mineral and a mix of savory herbs. Delicate yet vivid on the palate, with vibrant acidity driving the finish. There's a hint of vanilla on the aftertaste. Best from 2012 through 2022.

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.

Fresh apple, orange blossom, and honeysuckle in the nose of St. Urbans-Hof's 2007 Ockfener Bockstein Riesling Spatlese lead to lush and creamy, yet delicate and refreshing, citrus- and apple-enriched palate and a decidedly saline, stony, yet persistently sappy finish with well-integrated sweetness and a very slight hint of caramel. The balance here is uncanny, not just in the way that creaminess and liveliness, density and delicacy coexist, but also in the way that 11% alcohol is nowhere in evidence, while fewer than 50 grams of residual sugar (low by standards being set in recent years at so many addresses along the Mosel) proves to be quite enough. This outstanding value ought to merit 12-15 years of cellaring. Nik Weis declares 2007 "our finest vintage of all," adding that 2001 comes closest in quality among years of recent memory. In all honesty, the last seven vintages here have been so studded with superlatives that I am happy to leave it to fate in bottle and the judgment of a generation that comes after me to pick a "best collection" from among them.

Pungent and intense, with a lightweight, gossamer profile, this is quintessential Mosel, albeit in a hot vintage. It borders on licorice flavor, with slate and citrus accents. Long finish. Drink now through 2015.

Elegant and refined, perfumed with rich floral notes and hints of wet stone, with underlying elements of apricot, Bosc pear and red apple. From a terrific vintage for both ripeness and acidity, the 2010 is perfectly balanced, well-suited for both early drinking and a few years of cellaring. Ideal with scallops, veal or spicy Asian salads.
