Weingut Knoll Riesling, Loibner Federspiel Riesling 2014, Wachau, Austria
Tasting Note: A palate-cleansing riesling with riper fruit elements on the nose than on the palate.
Pale-intensity gold in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of under-ripe nectarine, pear and pineapple.
On the palate the dry riesling has flavors of chalky lemon citrus as though biting into an under-ripe, granny-smith apple or pear.
The wine is bright with high acidity.
