One of my favorite wines of the year so far, so simple but so perfect in complexity and pleasure giving.
From a relatively unknown producer in the US except for the hard core Wachau enthusiasts, the 1000 Eimerberg Riesling Federspiel from Gritsch Mauritiushof is so good right now. A vibrant and electric yellow color with a slight green tint. The nose is lively and energetic with fresh sweet lemons, a little apple and lots of sweet aromatic white flowers. The palate is medium bodied but dense and focused adding a layer of rock to the mineral core. The acidity is just right and perfectly balanced providing tension to the fruit and floral spectrum this delivers. Do yourself a favor and Google search 1000 Eimerberg and check out this crazy steep vineyard. #gritsch #mauritiushof #wachau #riesling #federspiel #1000eimerberg #spitz #austria — 5 years ago
