Franz Hirtzberger Riesling Smaragd Hochrain 1999

Member Review by winenut718:

very unique nose of minerals and violets- mountain stream!- palate is a bit shut down at the moment and revealing only hints of fruit- tons of minerals with great structure that literally dances on the tongue- lightweight and focused. not at peak, but very interesting.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
