Alzinger Riesling Smaragd Wachau Ried Liebenberg 2017

$51

Elegant, with razor-like acidity slicing through the richly spiced core of red peach and quince. Silky and nuanced, with a racy but youthfully intense profile. The mouthwatering finish shows hints of star anise and citrus. Needs some time to unravel completely. Best from 2022 through 2032. 78 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.
