2009 St. Urbans-Hof Ockner Bockstein Riesling Spätlese

The nose is very pretty, magnolia flowers and baked apples with a sprinkle of cardamom. Apples and just-fresh white peaches lead on the palate, barely sprinkled with cardamom and freshly grated nutmeg. Light acidity comes in the flavor of sweet Meyer lemon. Off-dry and creamy, this would contrast beautifully with spicy, peppery sausage. With its sweet creaminess, it is also a sure crowd-pleaser to pour for the pre-dinner kitchen klatch at any party or family gathering. Highly Recommended. DH
