Notes from the Importer:

A classified site, loess over calcareous deposits from the Alps, the vineyard is steep and warm. Often Erich’s Rieslings from here have (in my view) succumbed to rather more botrytis and alcohol than was good for them, but this ’16 may be the best Riesling in the modern history of this estate.

It soars into another whole orbit, and can easily play among the top Rieslings of the Krems and Kamptal. Lavish green aromas (balsam, lime zest, wintergreen); solid structure – the fit and finish are tight; juicy flavor but firm texture, with nuances of anise hyssop. What an achievement! And all for the price of a Federspiel from the Wachau. –Terry Theise
