Wine of the Week: 2010 Urban Riesling Qualitätswein Mosel (A Nik. Weis Selection)

Inspired by Wines of Germany’s “31 days of German Riesling,” this week’s selection is another lovely German Riesling. As I tasted the Urban Riesling, the image that came to mind was that of one of my favorite desserts – a baked golden delicious apple stuffed with yellow raisins. While the wine may be missing the cinnamon that I would expect in the apple’s filling it does zesty lemon, as well as a clean minerality. The Urban Riesling is off-dry with medium acidity and a rich, long finish. At only $12, this is a very pleasing wine that can easily be enjoyed on its own or with a variety of foods.

At Marty’s for $11.99.
