A perfect example of why Riesling is considered such an amazing varietal. Rich, fleshy fruit textures along with inherent backing acidity which provides balance and structure. This little gem is drinking so nice at the moment and will continue to evolve over many years. Not to mention this is a fantastic example why Kremstal is one of my favorite Riesling growing regions in Austria.

Lemon juice, wet slate, quince, and flowers show on the nose. Low-key stone fruit and apple are in evidence on the palate, along with a few petals worth of florality. In the final act, this quite dry, svelte Riesling bows out on a salty and mineral note.

This Riesling is such a steal for only $12. Classic Riesling with notes of honeysuckle, lemon, white nectarine and loads of chalky minerality. This wine is extremely textural with juicy mid-palate weight that make this wine the perfect pairing for any spicy foods.

I must admit, I don't know much about this particular producer. Here is what I do know: this wine is wonderfully weighty and round, showing notes of green apple, ripe yellow citrus fruits and limestone. It's one heck of a wine for twelve bucks.

I loved this Riesling. It's bright and zippy and perfect for a weekday when you just want something refreshing. Fresh lime, stone fruit and mineral notes shine through in this wine and the finish is dry with energetic acidity. Pair with roasted chicken, simple seafood dishes or enjoy on its own!

Completely dry and quite powerful Riesling from Kremstal region of Austria. Deep, clean, crisp and juicy, full of mineral and citrus flavors reminiscent of lemon and pomelo fruit. Very long and bright finish. Classic and delicious Riesling!

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Riesling

- While the rest of the world has often misappropriated the name--Welchriesling, Riesling Italico, Gray Riesling and Emerald Riesling are all names applied to varieties that are NOT Riesling--this exceptional German varietal has managed to maintain its identity. Perhaps its biggest claims to fame are its intoxicating perfume, often described as having honeyed stone fruit, herb, apple and citrus notes, and its incredible longevity - the wines lasting for decades. Aged Rieslings often take on a distinctive and alluring Petrol-like aroma. Within Germany, the grape seems to do best in the warming slate soils of the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer. Other German regions that turn out great Rieslings include Pfalz, Rheingau and Nahe. German Rieslings are made in a range of ripeness levels. The top wines are assigned Prädikat levels to describe their ripeness at harvest. These are: Kabinett, Spätlese, Auslese, Beerenauslese, Eiswein and Trockenbeerenauslese. Riesling has also achieved acclaim in France's Alsace, the only region in that country where the grape is officially permitted. Alsatian Rieslings are typically dry and wonderfully aromatic. Austrian Riesling is also steadily gaining praise and fine Riesling is also produced in Italy's Alto-Adige and Friuli, in Slovenia and much of Central and Eastern Europe. In the New World its stronghold is Australia, where it does best in the Eden and Clare Valleys. It is also planted in smaller amounts in New Zealand. In the US, winemakers are eschewing the syrupy sweet versions of the 1970s and 1980s, instead making elegant and balanced wines in both California and Washington State.
Country:

Austria

- Austria is a well-respected wine-growing region in Europe. Yet, even though they make about a third the volume of wine as Germany, not many of these fine bottles make it to the shelves of American wine merchants or restaurants. Lucky for us, their anonymity has translated into incredible value from simple, everyday whites to exquisite dessert wines. Austria shares many grape varieties with Germany—Riesling is king here, too. But the style of Austrian whites is much dryer and more potent. Grüner Veltliner is Austria's second-most-important varietal and makes whites of great versatility and pleasure. Click for a list of bestselling items from Austria.
