Tasting Notes
Technical Details

The wine style “Kabinett” refers to a true specialty of the Mosel and Saar region whose production demands a careful and conscious working ethic in the vineyard. Grown on hard, grey slate in the cool microclimate of the Saar Valley, the Bockstein Kabinett appears elegant like a ballerina due to its fine body, great flow and aromatic balance. Smoky and floral hints of elderflower, lilac and chamomile connect with citrus fruits and flavors of wild herbs and woodruff. =

The Estate

Founded in 1947, Nik Weis – St. Urbans-Hof has become one of the most important and classic wineries in the Mosel region. Since 2000, the Riesling winery is member of Germany’s renowned VDP (Association of German Quality Wine Estates). The approximately 45 hectares of vineyards stretch for around 60 km along the Mosel and Saar rivers and are cultivaed in a traditional manner in harmony with nature. Five of the prestigious individual crus, in which world-class Rieslings grow, are classified as Wines from great Sites (VDP.Grosse Lage). The wines are fermented exclusively with indigenous yeasts.

Wine Making

In the 1960s his son, Hermann, assumed management of all operations. During Hermann’s tenure the nursery expanded to become one of Germany’s largest. He established himself as a world-recognized vine breeder, especially noted for his work with Riesling. At the beginning of the 1970s he pioneered the use of this noble variety in Canada greatly contributing to the introduction of vitis vinifera into this country still new to quality winemaking. He planted the first large parcel of Riesling vines in the Niagara Peninsula under the title of St. Urban Vineyard, later to become Vineland Estates Winery.
