Nik Weis St. Urbans-Hof Piesporter Goldtropfchen Kabinett Riesling 2016

Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, GermanyThe Piesport town name has a long history of growing wine, some of which ends up to be some pretty ordinary stuff. Not the St. Urbans-Hof Goldtröpfchen Black Label Kabinett, however. The soil is heavy slate and the Weiss family farms some of the oldest vineyards in Goldtröpfchen with steep, rocky banks down to the river. The dark slate heats all day and releases its warmth all night and the result is a very rich style Kabinett, brimming with bright, tropical fruit. The palate is a story of black fruits, warm stones, peaches, and like last year, a dash of gooseberry. Sweet-ish yet refined, its the final elegance that pulls you back into a delicious bottle of sophisticated wine.Tasted: 06 July 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 44.00 estimated retail Producer: Weingut Nik Weis St. Urbans-HofDistributors: Renaissance Wine Merchants Ltd.
