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
Very tightly wound at this stage, herersquo;s a racy, intense Riesling full of finely etched lime, rhubarb and slate flavors. Be patient, it has all the elements. Best from 2002 through 2008.
Winemaker Nik Weis says, ldquo;There wasnrsquo;t much you could do wrong (in 2007).rdquo; The statement is supported by the high quality of his estate Riesling. Weis sourced grapes for the wine from two areas: 2.5 acres from near the winery in Leiwen, and 22 acres from Witingen in the Saar Valley. Although everything was fermented together, Weis feels this mix balances the richness of the Middle Mosel Riesling with the more austere style found in the Saar.
St. Urbans-Hof is among the top producers of German Riesling, and their basic offering far surpasses other Rieslings at much higher price points. Boasts a bright, mineral-infused nose of citrus and lemongrass; the body is bracingly crisp and sharply balanced. Here is a world-class Riesling at an everyday price, a wine that is perfect for pairing with appetizers and salads or savoring with fresh fruit and cheese.
This is racy and packed with a slate aromas and flavor and a lime accent. Slightly less concentrated than the estatersquo;s 2001, though itrsquo;s very expressive. Drink now.
The generic St. Urbans-Hof 2007 Riesling mdash; this year incorporating fruit from the upper reaches of the towering Laurentiuslay as well as from Leiwener Klostergarten and Wiltinger Schlangengraben mdash; smells pungently of orange zest, sage, and under-ripe apricot. A honeyed cast on the palate mdash; supported by well-judged residual sugar mdash; offers an attractive foil to the winersquo;s pungency and lively acidity. Citrus oil, apricot skin tartness, and wet stone mark the considerable finish of this excellent value, best suited for enjoyment over the next couple of years.
Characterized by mouthwatering acidity and luscious white peach, Granny Smith apple and slate notes. Light and delicate, with a tantalizing hint of sweetness. The moderate alcohol level coupled with the juicy fruit flavors make this wine a winner with savory, slightly spicy dishes such as chicken teriyaki or cajun shrimp, but donrsquo;t pass up a less obvious match mdash; this wine is terrific with omelettes!
Ripe and peachy, with floral notes of tangerine citrus and bright, zesty acidity, this is racy and balanced. A terrific value.
St.Urbans-hof Riesling Qba has delightful jasmine and pear aromas. The slate-induced minerality sits behind delicious apple and peach flavors. A long, flavorful finish is provided by the natural acidity of Mosel riesling, which balances the residual sugar of this off-dry wine. Fuller in body than most Mosel Qba wines, with excellent balance and low 9 percent alcohol, the St. Urbans-Hof Riesling Qba is perfect for warm weather drinking.
