Renski Rizling 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

This fantastic Slovenian Riesling is the first release from a new venture started by the well-known Austrian winemaker Erich Krutzler. Granny Smith apple and flinty minerals on the nose open onto a peachy palate that is über elegant, layered, and extremely vibrant. Lemon and lime zest notes on the finish contribute additional complexity to this very exciting off-the-beaten-path gem. An awesome discovery for dry Riesling lovers!

The name of the winery “MAROF,” meaning “Meierhof” in German, is an agricultural estate dating back to 1905, when the Hungarian family Szápáry built a kind of “hunting house” together with agricultural buildings and a wine cellar there. The MAROF winery is located in the “Prekmurje” (meaning north of the “Mura” river) region, whose main city is Murska Sobota. The region’s Hungarian, Austrian and Croatian influences show how EUROPE can work without the nationalism and conflicts of its ethnic groups. The grand estate is located on rolling, vine covered hills, in the midst of unspoiled nature. After travelling up the road and leaving all the villages and houses behind, one could get the feeling that it must be the wrong road, since the forests and meadows don’t hold a promise of any estate being near. Only then a breathtaking view takes you by surprise: on the top of the hill stands a modern wine cellar shoulder to shoulder with a renovated castle and between them – connecting the old with the new – a grandiose linden tree sways. From the hill the vineyards are surrounded by intact nature. Read less
