Professional reviews:

International Wine Cellar (Joel B. Payne): “Lovely aromas of peach, flowers and hazelnut. Creamy apricot fruit on the palate, but with a bracing citrus character lending support. Persistent, vibrant finishing flavors of slate, lemon oil and clove. A well-honed spatlese with very good potential.” 91+/100 pts

Wine Advocate (David Schildknecht): “St. Urbans-Hof’s 2010 Leiwener Laurentiuslay Riesling Spatlese represents the cask-raised 50% of a single day’s picking of their entire holdings in this site, a lot which expressed and was labeled to reflect the character of a Spatlese. Relatively high in alcohol for its genre (at 11.5%), it nonetheless evinces obvious though well-integrated sweetness (from 50 grams residual sugar) and – even factoring in palpably high extract – flattering buoyancy. Licorice and orange liqueur in the nose are mingled with honey on a silken palate, lent welcome counterpoint by piquant bite of orange rind and kumquat as well as infused with saliva-liberating salinity. This ought to be well worth following for two decades if not longer.” 91/100
