Crazy value from Slovakia! Nice weight on this with loads of citrus up front, a mid-palate of sizzling acidity on top of chalk, flint, and pine, and finally a yeasty/bready finish that lasts and lasts. Very cool.

Vivid and racy. Mineral and petrol nose, then piney on the pallete like retsina. Bizarre.

A fun surprise. Good strong effervescence. The lees contact gave this a yeasty roundness that helped with the 14% abv. Very fresh and easy to drink. #slovakia #egonmüller #riesling
