White wine. Wachau, Austria. Sustainable. 100% Riesling. "In the middle of the Axpoint and cultivated on pure loess, the 2018 Ried Hochrain Riesling Smaragd combines the fruit picked on September 18 and October 30. The wine opens with a spicy, elegant and even coolish bouquet of ripe and elegant stone fruits. Lush and round, this is a rather soft but fine and balanced Riesling with the charm of Veltliner but the piquancy and grip of Riesling. If you are not ready for a very pure Riesling, this is the one to start with. Tasted at the domain in September 2019." — 92 Points, Stephen Reinhardt, Wine Advocate (March 2020)
