Tasting Notes

The 2016 Ried Loibenberg Riesling Smaragd is stunningly precise, cool and fresh on the nose where mango, passion fruit and yellow nectarine flavors are displayed. On the palate, this is a full-bodied, piquant and concentrated Riesling with a tight structure, lovely grip and tension from healthy, crisp skins. This is a great Loibenberg that just needs 5-7 years to shine. Tasted as a sample in July 2017.
