St. Michael Eppan Riesling Montiggl 2016

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

With a very lean almost lemony nose that hints at almond and grapefruit pith and grows to include some peach and crushed rock as well this is subtle and intriguing. Vibrant acidity which quickly integrates with lovely, ripe peach and apple fruit s that are restrained and a bit citrus with some pineapple tones, and hints of pignoli nuts, and a very cleansing mineral finish which turns a bit more lime like, excellent length with a cyanide/cinnamon/chalky finale 90pts

Up front light honeysuckle notes followed by herbal and slight butterscotch underneath leads to initial light spritz in the mouth lots of sweet apple, more butterscotch and grassy layers that linger on the finish.

Intense aromas of white peach and apricot, with Elegant and balanced, mineralityEstablished in 1907, the San Michele Appiano winery is today considered to be one of the best wineries in Alto Adige and Italy.Grapes: 100% RieslingRegion: Italy / Alto Adige / montigglMaker: Hans TerzerNotes: The low yields from these vineyards ensure the high quality of this wine. Intense aromas of white peach and apricot, with Elegant and balanced, mineralityServe: At 10-12c it is great light fish dishes, Asian cuisine and vegetable dishes. In spring, it is lovely with asparagus salad with a ham roll filled with Bozner sauce. It is also lovely with goats cheese.ABV: 13%
