ALZINGER ALZINGER - Riesling Höhereck Smaragd - 2015

ALZINGER Riesling Höhereck Smaragd 2015

See the wine detail page

(92-93) Points

The 2015 Riesling Smaragd Dürnsteiner Höhereck offers a clear and intense bouquet of ripe fruits and some leafy aromas. Full-bodied, fresh and aromatic on the palate this is a clear, pure and elegant, fruit-intense and very salty Riesling with stony flavors and a long and tension-filled finish. Very good expression and mineral structure here.
