Food Pairings for St. Urbans-Hof Riesling Trocken
Interesting wine where the fruit and mineral seem to balance each other. Somewhat fruity and slightly sweet, although not really beyond off-dry. The 9.5% abv is good for keeping the crowd under control. Good wine for the tame-whites only crowd. Tested at 70 deg F. Pop and pour. Attractive nose of powdered stone, earthy dried fruits, and hints of fruit and leaves. Good acid on the attack with a slight glycerin sheen in the mouth nicely balanced against tastes of stony mineral and slightly warm, neither sweet nor sour ripe fruit (green apple, citrus (mandarin or tangerine), hints of tropical fruit (e.g. pineapple)). Lingering finish of mostly citrus and mineral with hints of the apple. Off-dry. Body medium plus, acid medium.
Fresh apples on the nose. It's a vibrant wine of apples and slate mineral. Very refreshing and nice! - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 8/7/10
The nose has notes of apple and peach. The mouth feel is buttery and semi sweet, primarily featuring the flavor of roasted peach. A fairly short, crisp finish that leaves a gentle sweetness and acidity on the palate. Great for a warm spring day.
great riesling for a low cost. sweet and fruity with a wonderful refreshing taste
As a steadfast drinker of big reds, this is nevertheless my favorite white--and maybe favorite everyday wine--of late. A deliciously drinkable, thirst-quenching Riesling, it falls just a bit on the sweet side, but never cloyingly so; it is so good on its own or with meals favoring a white that I'm nearly converted from insisting on an Italian or California red at dinnertime. Price/value cannot be beat.
External Reviews for St. Urbans-Hof Riesling Trocken
A mouthwatering, thirst-quenching version of liquid sweet and sour lime in a bottle.
The grapes for this estate Riesling are sourced from about 37 acres of vineyards around this family-owned winery in Leiwen and from the Wiltingen Schlangengraben in the Saar. These vineyards are flat and easy to manage, therefore reducing costs and resulting in a great German value. Good growing conditions resulted in an elegant wine backed by plenty of zip.
Rich, firm and complex, serving a mix of grapefruit, vanilla cream, slate and spice aromas and flavors. Balanced, leaving a mouthwatering impression. Drink now through 2010.
From the stellar 2001 vintage, this Mosel QbA makes clear why this year was so special. Bright, warm, full of ripe, rich pineapple, melon, and a soft shale mineral note that rounds out the package. All this is kept in sharp focus by that hallmark beam of acidity. An incredible value.
Relatively full-bodied, even though the alcohol is only 10%, this shows a touch of the botrytis influence of the vintage, with apricot notes adding interest to the straightforward melon and herb flavors. Finishes soft; drink now.
An ideal introduction to Riesling. Lush ripe white peaches and apricot blossoms with moderate sweetness in this fruit-forward bottling.
The QBA is a consistent winner and a tremendous value year after year. This vintage is notable for a wave of fresh grapefruit, peach and wet stones with pleasant acidity.
