Nigl Riesling Kremstal Ried Goldberg 2017

$84

Soft-spoken up front, this needs some time to unravel, with hints of lavender and orchard blossom. Stone fruit notes emerge midpalate, intermingled with sea salt, coriander and tarragon, all tied to a vivid structure. Very pure and precise, but some bottle age will help reveal this wine's facets even more. Best from 2021 through 2031. 50 cases imported.

Summary

Grape

Riesling

Riesling is believed to have originated in Germany, which remains the leading producer of these wines worldwide, making a range of styles from bone-dry to sweet and everything in between. On the other side of the French-German border, Alsace is also one of the highest-regarded sources of Riesling, as is Austria, which generally focuses on dry styles. In the New World, Riesling has found a home in Australia, notably Clare Valley, as well as in New York's Finger Lakes, Canada, New Zealand and Washington.
