96James Suckling

...very seductive dry riesling that has an extremely succulent peach and exotic-fruit character...very long, super minerally finish.

96Wine Enthusiast

...hint of reduction and a spicy note of crushed herb...hints of orange rind and ripe Mirabelle. The palate immediately hits with its pithy concentration that sets a pleasantly bitter accent to this taut but resonant wine. The finish is all about mouthwatering tangerine zest, ripe and appetizing, tangy and dry.

93+ The Wine Advocate

...clear and elegant but still yeasty on the intense and spicy nose. Creamy textured and juicy but very fine and elegant on the palate...full-bodied, clear and fresh Riesling with a long and firmly structured, slightly tannic finish.


Austria, Niederosterreich, Kremstal

Kremstal is a wine of southern Austria that includes both the north and south banks of the Danube River, which winds through this district and helps give the wines their distinct characteristics. The main towns here are Stein and Krems, and the soil is an unusually soft loess – meaning half soil and half rock. Vintners here say the loess terroir contributes greatly to the flinty, dry but concentrated Grüner Veltliners and Rieslings. Austria has only in the last decade or so started an appellation system, and it is still in flux. However, there is a Kremstal Austria Controllatus (DAC) for Grüner Veltliner and Riesling.


White Wine, Riesling

This white variety originated in Germany. It’s known for its strong flowery aromas and high acidity. Please note Rieslings can have dramatic differences as the grape can be used to make dry, semi-sweet, sweet and sparkling wines.
