St. Urbans-Hof 2011 Zickelgarten Riesling Spatlese

Posted by Keith Wallace

I tried this wine for the first time almost one year ago. I was at the annual trade tasting for a wine importer. He had just brought this wine less than a week before, and only 10 cases were imported into the United States. I told my client, a wine shop owner, to buy all of it, and he did.

I am pretty sure he drank most of it himself, and I don’t blame him. This is one of the prettiest wines I have ever tasted. It’s a rare gem. There are only about 20 bottles left in the country, and I just bought two of them.

My tasting notes are a bit rough and ready (I dropped the eff bomb a half dozen times when I tasted it for the first time). The 96 points are mine. The Wine Spectator gave it a slightly lower score.
