2018 Alzinger Riesling Smaragd Steinertal (750ml)

Riesling from Wachau, Niederosterreich, Austria


A flinty whiff of reduction appears first, then a notion of passion fruit, but the flavors home in on ripe tangerine and Meyer lemon. These aromatic citrus notions swirl on the palate, offering up hints of juicy peach here and riper tangerine there. All of this exuberance is anchored in a stony and slender but solid core. The mild freshness carries all to a lingering, dry finish. Drink 2025–2045.

Crushed grapefruit and pomelo spring from the glass, along with orchids and gooseberries; it’s very aromatic and vibrant. The palate has a peachy, grainy texture, and the acidity drives through the stone fruit long and bright. Drink now.
