Tegernseerhof, Riesling Federspiel "Dürnstein", Wachau, Austria 2018 100% Riesling
DRY; PINEAPPLE & TANGY MANGO, LIME & RICH MINERALITY This stunningly complex, laser-dry wine, from a steeply terraced hillside vineyard in Austria’s revered Wachau region, is the kind of Riesling that converts skeptics. Martin Mittelbach is already one of the great winemakers in this most prestigious (and reliably expensive) of regions, but, like him, his reputation is still young. His wines represent some of the most impressive values one could hope to find from here. Serving Suggestions: Smoked trout w/ dill & lemon crème fraîche. Czech potato pancakes w/ caraway, oregano, & sour cream. Slightly spicy Thai papaya salad.
