TASTING NOTES BY LENZ M. MOSER

“The light colour indicates also its lightness in alc: 12.5%. The perfume is powered by primary aromas of fresh flowers – reminding me of a spring meadow, with the bees humming from plant to plant. Citrus elements spark freshness and are adding to a complex nose already. The wine is a sheer delight for easy drinking – so quaffable, you want more and more of it. However, its backbone and its character make it also a serious wine.

I did grow up with Italian Riesling – as this grape variety was one of the predominant wines of Austria at the time – and it is still big in certain countries in central Europe.“
