Light yellow gold in the glass, with some very minimal effervescence that to be honest I’ve never noticed before.
Apples marinated lightly in petrol on the nose, with a dose of that spritz, seemingly served with/on rocks.
On the palate, crisp acidity framing ripe white fruits; drinking very youthfully right now. Light-bodied for an Austrian riesling, and right now not displaying any of the 13.5% alcohol. Shows a slight bitterness on the finish. I’ve had better bottles of this wine, although this is still good. I had forgotten this wine was screwcapped, and I have to applaud any winemaker willing to try an alternative to corks even for his top-of-the-line releases.
