Alzinger – Riesling Smaragd 2016 Ried Loibenberg – Wachau

The nose is fruity and slightly intense / powerful. It reveals notes of green apple and crunchy peach associated with touches of juicy citrus, racy minerality as well as small hints of lily of the valley and a hint of lemon peel. The palate is juicy, fruity, well-balanced, racy and offers a beautiful freshness, a racy minerality, a good structure as well as a (very) slight fleshiness / gourmandise. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy lemon, juicy tangerine and small notes of crushed apple associated with hints of crunchy peach, lily of the valley, racy minerality as well as a discreet hint of zest. Good length. There are a touch of lime zest, green apple and an imperceptible touch of fresh green almond on the finish.
