Schmelz Riesling Smaragd Steinriegl 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Mittleres Grünbelb in der Nase weißer Pfirsich, rauchig und mineralisch, zarte Grapefruitnuancen. Am Gaumen kraftvoll, im Stil schon eher eine trocken Ausles, wieder von Steinobst geprägt, finessreich trotz viel Kraft große Länge.

The Grape Varietals Our grapes varietals are 60% Grüner Veltliner, 30% Riesling. The rest is Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Blauer Zweigelt and in the foreseeable future Gelber Muskateller.
