Schmelz Riesling Smaragd Durnsteiner Freiheit 2010
Named after the local emerald coloured Idex lizard, smaragd is the most prized of the Vinea Wachau quality classifications and is made only from the best grapes when they are at their ripest. These vines are grown in rocky soil terraces high above Dürnstein on the Danube and have the aroma of ripe peaches, satsumas and pineapple, with wild herb notes. Considerable depth with a smoothness that stays with you. Citrus fruits and apricot are balanced with just a touch of residual sugar.
