“All the stars are aligned on this one—elite producer and region; perfectly positioned vineyard; stunningly fair price. This is Riesling heaven!”

This Federspiel-designated bottling, from the granitic soils of the “Burgstall” vineyard, is such an impressive fusion of producer, place, and price it almost seems too good to be true—but here it is in all its world-class, mineral-etched glory, ready to be scooped up by our savvy subscribers. It’s a one-stop master class on the wonders of Wachau Riesling, which are, of course, plentiful. We can’t recommend it highly enough! The wine shows a light yellow-green hue with silver reflections in the glass. It is squeaky clean, with assertive aromas of ripe white peach, apricot, orange zest, white flowers, and a hint of pink grapefruit on a smoky, mineral background. It is salty and fresh on a medium-bodied, slightly glossy palate that’s boasting ripe white nectarine, lime peel, crushed stone, tart pear, apple skin, and white pepper. Perfectly crunchy acidity delivers a precisely layered and dry Riesling with classic Wachau grip and tension yet dripping with pleasantly ripe fruit. Seriously good with classic fried chicken!
