2011 Wachau Ried Steinriegl Riesling Smaragd® trocken, Lower Austria/Niederösterreich, Austria

Restrained, quite fine, delicately vegetal aroma with yellow-fruity notes with herbaceous and floral nuances. Ripe, melting, bright fruit, nutty and tart-vegetable flavours, very fine acidity and some grip, persistent on the palate, some warmth, but also cooling mineral notes, good substance and depth, restrained power, very good, quite dense, somewhat melting and restrained spicy finish. Still without age.

Editor note: Translate to English Straffer, jugendlicher Zitrus-Steinobstduft mit herben Kräuternoten und präsenter Mineralik. Klare, recht saftige Frucht im Mund, leicht hefige Töne, präsente Säure, herbe mineralische und leicht kräuterige Würze, viel Griff, mittlere Kraft und gute Nachhaltigkeit, etwas Tiefe, viel Spannung, sehr guter Abgang. Sollte noch reifen.
