About

94

The 2015 Riesling Smaragd Achleiten displays a pure and mineral bouquet of crushed stones and white-peach aromas. Intense and fruity on the palate, with good concentration and densely woven texture, this is a piquant and spicy flavored Riesling with great intensity and ripeness.

90 Wine Spectator

An added touch of exotic tropical fruit signals this ripe yet well-structured white, with apricot, papaya and banana flavors underscored by floral and mineral accents. Drink now. 575 cases made. –BS

Product Description:

This Riesling is a clear, bright pale lemon-green with a slight pétillance in the glass. Aromas of green apple and lemon are prevalent with subtle notes of white peach and chamomile in the background. On the palate, the wine is light-bodied, crisp, and ever so slightly off dry with flavors of green apple, lemon, and underripe peach with hints of petrol, clove, and a stony minerality on the finish.
