In the glass, the Layet Riesling GG from Weingut Nik Weis St. Urbans-Hof offers a bright pale yellow color. When swirling the glass, one can perceive a perfect balance in this white wine, as it does not stand out on the glass walls in a watery, syrupy or liqueur-like manner. This single varietal German wine displays delightfully distinguished notes of apples, quince, mirabelle plums and vineyard peach in the glass. These are joined by hints of other fruits.
The Weingut Nik Weis St. Urbans-Hof Layet Riesling GG impresses with its elegantly dry flavor. It was bottled with 4.6 grams of residual sugar. As you would naturally expect from a wine icon wine segment, this German wine naturally enraptures with the finest balance for all its dryness. Taste does not necessarily need a lot of residual sugar. On the palate, the texture of this balanced white wine presents itself wonderfully dense. Due to its concise fruit acidity, the Layet Riesling GG presents itself impressively fresh and lively on the palate. In the finish, this youthful from the wine-growing region of the Moselle finally inspires with considerable length. Once again, hints of nashi pear and nectarine show through.
