Franz Hirtzberger Riesling Smaragd Wachau Ried Singerriedel 2017

$98

An intense, aromatic version, with notes of spice and rose water framing the core of nectarine, clementine and ground ginger flavors. Powerful yet elegant, delivering a lot right now, but will be even better after several years in the cellar. A long herbal element extends on the savory, inviting finish. Best from 2021 through 2031. 20 cases imported.

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.
