The St. Urbans-Hof Estate Riesling “From Old Vines” represents everything you can expect from a fine Riesling from Germany’s renowned Mosel Valley. It has the elegance and freshness that Riesling is known for plus the depth and finesse that only wines from old gnarly vines can have. The combination of old vines and the blue, highly decomposed slate rocks give this Riesling its great minerality, meaning an appealing somewhat salty finish. The nose is rather fruity and floral, while the elegant mouthfeel is dominated by fresh, mineral and fine flavors of ripe stone fruits. With a lively acidity and delicate medium sweetness, Riesling Estate Bottled from Old Vines invites every connoisseur for the next sip. It is a perfect accompaniment for mild Asian dishes such as Thai Curries.
Sun-struck yellow peaches and nectarines are dusted with slate and sea salt in this invigorating off-dry Riesling. Light on its feet and equal parts fruit and earth, it's a zesty, nuanced sip that finishes long and smoky. Ready now, but it should hold well through 2029.
