A pleasure to taste Kremstal Riesling at this slightly lower ripeness level. The acids and fruit profile are almost in Mosel territory, with attractive tartness and crisp citrus notes. The nose is a charmer, with hints of white blossoms and lime. Tight and refreshing.
Ripe and generous with noticeable sugar on the palate, although the finish is a bit dryer than expected. Full of baked apple and hints of brioche. Certainly expressive but treads a fine line trying to keep the ripeness and the fruit in balance.
Quite structured, stalky Riesling with beautiful acidity and some green pepper notes – yes, more similar to a Grüner! The body is smooth and silky with a slightly honeyed character – it’s a bone dry wine though. Lots to like.
Muted green pepper on the nose, but the palate is exciting and driven by a fine thread of nervy acidity. Biscuit and cream notes add weight on the finish. Typically precise and elegant as one expects from this stellar house.
Mint and wild herb aromas on the nose, with a subtle suggestion of ripeness on the attack – a slight raisined quality to the fruit. Lacks a bit of precision, although does tick the salty minerality box – and stays fresh and tight to the end.
