Weingut Knoll Loibner Riesling Smaragd 2013
Lovely nose of cream, clarified butter, white flowers, apricot, wet stones and a touch of creme brulee. Medium to full bodied with a racy entry on the palate of lemon zest, grapefruit and savory herbs that turns intensely mineral with powerful flavors of exotic citrus like orange bergamot, seville orange and citron that linger on the long finish.
This family run winery is a treasure that has been estate owned and operated for over three generations. The majority of the Knoll’s vineyard plantings are dedicated to Grüner Veltliner and Riesling. The Knoll Winery upholds stringent farming and winemaking standards that vintage after vintage propel their wines to the top of restaurant, collector and critic’s lists. Knoll wines are easily recognized by their distinct label that depicts an ornate image of St. Urban the patron saint of winemakers and vineyards.
