Weingut Gritsch Mauritiushof

1000-Eimerberg Federspiel Riesling 2015

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.

Austrian varieties (other than Gruner and Riesling - which are great) deserve love too. #Neubuger #wachau #wachauwundebar — 4 years ago

Med - concentration with straw core and a clear rim. The nose and palate were both a little blah. Med intensity and complexity with underripe citrus, white flowers, apple skin, white pepper, and hay. The palate lacked grip even with med + acid. Med - complexity and short length. Nice for a patio pounder. #tegernseerhoff #wachau #austria #grunerveltliner #federspiel #t26 #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago

I love that Alzinger color coordinates his labels. Green = Gruner, red = Riesling 👍 #msclassic #gruner #wachau — 4 years ago
