Wine of the Week: Nik Weis Urban Riesling 2014

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.

Wine of the Week: Nik Weis Urban Riesling 2014

Tasting Notes:
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.
