Nik Weis St. Urbans-Hof, Wiltinger Kabinett Riesling 2018, Mosel, Germany
Tasting Note: A Mosel riesling with tropical-and-stonefruit flavors that merge together seamlessly within your glass.
Pale-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of green apple, white nectarine, lychee, lime-citrus zest, pineapple and jasmine blossom.
On the palate the medium-dry, medium-plus-bodied Mosel riesling has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity and completing with a blossom-infused, medium-plus finish.
While just-ripened fruit rides above the majority of the taste, there are some punctuated notes of tartness along the midpalate.
Low-alcohol Mosel wines like these are perfect to share as an aperitif and with your mother.
And they make a wonderful base to which to add a splash of sparkling wine.
