nik weisNik Weiss represents his family’s third generation at the helm of St. Urbans-Hof, which was granted VDP classification in 2000.

Intensely aromatic, impressive flint, nectarine and apple with lime and white flower highlights pop from the glass.

On the palate, an introduction of enticing sweet, round fruit gives way to the Mosel’s characteristic slate-like minerality which provides midpalate lift while encouraging emerging grapefruit notes. A long, refreshing finish of citrus and hints of salinity wrap up this impressive package.

This is an off-dry wine that shows its sweetness early and finishes with savory, crisp, acidity.

An excellent value and an ideal pairing for any dish with some spice and sweetness.

Generous and intense, full of good vibrations but with a cryptic edge, Joni’s Big Yellow Taxi (2007 version) is a match.
