Alzinger ‘Ried Steinertal’ Smaragd Grüner Veltliner Wachau, Austria 2017

Regular price $75.00

From a cool-climate vineyard on shisty, loam soils in the Wachau, the Alzinger 'Ried Steinertal' is a clear picture of what a serious Grüner Veltliner can offer. The Smaragd classification renders a more complex example of Grüner Vetliner and Leo Alzinger a boss in this neck of the Wachau.

The 2017 Alzinger ‘Ried Steinertal’ Smaragd Grüner Veltliner is fermented whole cluster, aged in stainless steel and a small amount of neutral Austrian oak. It is creamy and textured with distinct acidity and a mineral vibe.
