Rixinger Weingut – 2016 Kalkofen Neuburger Smaragd – Wachau

The nose is mineral, intense, slightly powerful (in the background) and offers concentration. It reveals notes of white peach, apple and fine hints of rocky minerality associated with subtle wooded points. The mouth is fruity, mineral, well-balanced, fat, very sligtly “perlante” (discreetly sparkling), slighty tight, round and offers a fine acid frame, a fine gourmandise, a fine concentration, richness, density, freshness, a fine minerality and fine unctuosity. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of ripe lemon, crushed exotic fruits (quenette, passion fruit) and fine notes of white fruits (in the background) associated with an imperceptible hint of citrus zest. Good length.
