• St. Urbans-Hof Tasting on 3/30

    Tasting starts at 4pm on Friday
    Well on Wednesday morning I was greeted with a nice bottle of Riesling from the Finger Lakes district so in turn I figured...why not a Riesling tasting?

    I've met Nik about a dozen times in the last 20 years, not like he would remember me...I didn't have my mustache. His wines are stupid-good and ready for your Easter egg hunt. Being that this year Easter falls on April Fools day...you could really make this an Easter egg hunt your family would never forget.

    2016 Nik Weis Riesling Estate "Old Vines" QBA - A pure, well-sculpted, off-dry version, with persimmon, lime and slate flavors coating the palate. Hints of orchard blossom and herbs add to the complexity, making you reach for another sip.

    2016 Urban Riesling QBA - very lightly off-dry but its so bright and intense that the sweetness barely registers. An elegant, crisp and fruity Riesling with a hint of natural residual sweetness. This wine has the typical light character of the Riesling grape and the style of a classic Mosel Riesling.

    2014 St. Urbans-Hof Wiltinger Feinherb Kabinett "Alte Reben" - Wiltinger Alte Reben offers a lovely, clear, bright and flinty bouquet with fascinating lavender aromas. This is a typical Riesling from Wiltingen, very precise and focused on the nose. This is a very delicate, filigreed, lean and elegant Riesling of great purity and intensity. The finish reveals a nice tension and drinkability. This is a classic Saar respectively Wiltingen Riesling in the leaner and lighter style, with a finesse-full and very elegant fruit intensity.

    2011 St. Urbans-Hof Piesporter Goldtröpfchen Spätlese - Rich and spicy, with a caressing mouthful of white chocolate, ripe peach and baked apple flavors, supported by moderate acidity. Finishes with passion fruit and honeydew melon.

    As you can see...I'm not screwing around here peeps!
