Urban not as in city, but as in saint of the wine industry. Living in the 4th Century, Urban was the bishop of Langres and eventually canonized as a saint, being invoked against blight and alcoholism. Nik Weis has chosen Mosel Riesling grapes, some from his in-laws' vineyard, then oversees vinification in stainless steel. Beautiful example of a Mosel Riesling, simply made, but with lots of character.
Light straw color; floral, spice, lemon, and starfruit aromas; honeyed melon, lemon, spice, and tropical fruit flavors; extremely luscious, round mouthfeel; sweetness underlaid by a nice acidic backbone, then into a crisp finish; cork closure; SRP $14.Wine provided for tasting purposes - all opinions are my own.
