Alzinger ‘Ried Steinertal’ Smaragd Riesling Wachau, Austria 2017

Regular price $81.00

From a cool-climate vineyard on shisty, loam soils in the Wachau, the Alzinger 'Ried Steinertal' Riesling is some of the best in the Wachau. Terraced vines are planted at the very top of the Steinertal vineyard, offering optimal sunlight and northern breeze. The Smaragd classification renders a more complex example of Riesling, and Leo Alzinger is a boss in the vines of the Wachau. 

The 2017 Alzinger ‘Ried Steinertal’ Smaragd Riesling is fermented and aged in stainless steel and a small amount of neutral Austrian oak. Lemon, white flower, peaches and a super mineral vibe.
