Markus Huber Riesling Engelreich Traisental 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Stony citrus aroma and a touch of Gruner's peppery character on the nose and some green apple as well as citrus. Taut and lively but with good depth of clear citrus fruit. A lovely line of freshness but balanced by pure, bright fruit. There's really good fruit depth even in such a streamlined wine. Long finish and great purity. Tastes off dry but the crisp acidity undermines the impression of slight sweetness on the finish. Drink 2012-2020. (JH)" - 16.5 out of 20 points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages Wine: "Light yellow green; splendid bloom perfume intermingled with small white peach aromas; the palate is tightly knit and has acid structure rich in finesse; exuding delicate hints of lemon; vivid and vibrant with a vigorous finish that comes back in a wave of stone fruit flavours." Vinification: "Selection of the best physiologically ripe grapes; crushed; skin contact for 4 hours; pressed; fermented in stainless steel; kept on the lees for 4 months." "Serving suggestion: Goes best with fish e.g. with trout or salmon; also very good with spicy food; especially asian cuisine." - Winery Vineyard: "East facing vineyard from the top site Engelreich; conglomerate soil with high chalk content." - Winery
