Riesling Durnsteiner Hohereck Smaragd, Alzinger
The greatest young wine I tasted this year, it is the terminus of every great facet of Wachau Riesling, the herbs from this, the peaches and plums from that, the mangoes from another, the smoke from yet another—all there. A stunning vintage of a stunning wine, very rare; rich and weightless. Lux Aeterna. How and when this heaven arrives, after months of sweaty muscle-straining labor, only heaven knows.
I am really sorry how little I can offer. The vineyard is small and Alzingers don’t own much of it. I’m lucky to get it at all. – Terry Theise
