WTN: A Riesling and a sweetie

Postby Bruce Hayes » Wed Oct 10, 2012 10:12 am

Notes are from memory.

St. Urbans-Hof Riesling 2005
QbA Mosel-Saar-Ruwer
Lovely gold in the glass.
Petrol on the nose.
Rich, mouth filling, good acidity, some petrol, spicy, honeyed with slightly bruised apple fruit.

J.P. Vinhos Moscatel De Setubal 2001
DO Setubal
A lovely dark copper in the glass.
Rich, raisins, burnt sugar, lightly floral on the nose.
Thick in the mouth, raisins, burnt sugar, caramel, very rich and intense.

The St. Urbans-Hof Riesling is always a good value bottle.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
