Winemaker Notes

Crisp, racy and refined, reflective of the style that every lover of Riesling from our area seeks ...light and elegant with wonderful fruit flavor. This taste profile for the 2007 vintage wines is the inimitable hallmark of top-quality Mosel Riesling, low in alcohol yet bursting with fruit flavor and minerality, providing a vinous transparency of time and place.

Critical Acclaim

WS 90
Wine Spectator


#56 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008

Needs a little air to reveal its floral, apricot and slate aromas and flavors. Beautifully integrated, with a lingering, stony, savory finish. Drink now through 2018. 10,000 cases made.

Wine & Spirits

Ripe and peachy, with floral notes of tangerine citrus and bright, zesty acidity, this is racy and balanced. A terrific value.

RP 88
The Wine Advocate

The generic St. Urbans-Hof 2007 Riesling – this year incorporating fruit from the upper reaches of the towering Laurentiuslay as well as from Leiwener Klostergarten and Wiltinger Schlangengraben – smells pungently of orange zest, sage, and under-ripe apricot. A honeyed cast on the palate – supported by well-judged residual sugar – offers an attractive foil to the wine’s pungency and lively acidity. Citrus oil, apricot skin tartness, and wet stone mark the considerable finish of this excellent value, best suited for enjoyment over the next couple of years.

A vast appellation covering Sonoma County’s Pacific coastline, the Sonoma Coast AVA runs from the San Pablo Bay to the Mendocino County border. The region can actually be divided into two sections—the “true” Sonoma Coast, marked by high rainfall, marine soils, cool temperatures, and saline ocean breezes, from which one can actually see the ocean—and the warmer, drier vineyards further inland, creating a diversity of wine styles. Contained within the appellation is the much smaller and more focused Fort Ross-Seaview AVA.

Sonoma Coast is highly regarded for elegant [Pinot Noir], Chardonnay, and, increasingly, cool-climate Syrah, with high acidity, moderate alcohol, firm tannin, and fruit that is rarely overripe. One of the most favorable sites within the region is the Petaluma Gap, where a break in the coastal mountain range allows Pacific winds and fog to funnel through and cool the vineyards.
