Wine Advocate 89 points - Based as usual on Wiltinger Schlangengraben and Leiwener Klostergarten, and almost entirely tank-raised, the St. Urbans-Hof 2011 Riesling delivers a surprisingly complex, subtle aroma for an inexpensive generic. Gentian, buddleia, apple blossom, as well as intimations of fresh pear, white peach and lime then inform its juicy and expansive yet delicate and wafting palate. Hints of stone and apple pip add counterpoint to a modestly-lingering finish whose sweetness comes off as entirely discreet even though there are 38 grams of residual sugar present. Look for this outstanding value to perform admirably through at least 2016. Hoffmann explains that some fruit for this was picked early (even if a bit too early from a phenolic standpoint) in order to enliven the finished blend. It certainly worked. If this be ?designer wine,? let us make the most of it! (Apr 2013)

Wine maker notes
An elegant, crisp and fruity Riesling with a hint of natural residual sweetness. This wine has the typical light character of the Riesling grape and the style of a classic Mosel Riesling. Serve as an aperitif or as companion to Tapas, Scampis, roasted fish or Thai cuisine.
