Expert Reviews
  • Wine & Spirits
    (From 2003 Vintage) The St. Urbans-Hof 2004 Piesporter Goldtropfchen Riesling Auslese smells of pineapple, mango, banana, black currant, flowers, and honey. For all of its heady and gaudy tropicality and florality, in the mouth this wine displays startlingly lemony citrus and a crisp apple side to the fruit. All of the flowers and tropical fruits reprise in the finish along with mineral salts, fresh citrus, and black fruits. This wine combines a remarkable combination of verve and richness, ably representing the results of picking for an enormous concentration of tiny, largely unblemished berries in a grand cru site.
