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

Translate to English Kühler, sehr straffer, floraler Duft nach teils kandierten Zitrusfrüchten mit Apfel- und Pfirsichnuancen, etwas Quitte, feinen kräuterigen und floralen Nuancen sowie deutlicher Mineralik und einem Hauch dunkler Beeren. Auch im Mund ziemlich straff gewirkt, auffällige, kühle Kräuterwürze, auch die straffe, leicht zitrusbetonte Frucht wirkt kühl, lebendige, sehr feine und geschliffene Säure, nachhaltig am Gaumen, sehr mineralisch, bei aller Kraft ziemlich eleganter Stil, hat viel Spannung, animierend, tabakige Anklänge, noch sehr jung, sehr guter bis langer Abgang.
