Wachau Riesling Smaragd Vom Stein, Nikolaihof 2002

Inventory Status: 1


Nikolaihof wines stand out for their purity and almost overwhelming intensity of flavors. "Archaic" is the word to aptly describe the Nikolaihof estate and its operation. Its vineyards have been under vine for 2,000 years--the oldest wine estate in Austria--and for the past 110 years, the Saahs family has owned and operated the estate. Viticulture has been biodynamic for 30 years now, well before most vineyards around the world. Winemaking is also very basic. This spectacular Riesling was all aged in one large wooden cask as no stainless steel, temperature-controlled tanks are utilized in the cellars. A marvel of natural viticulture and age-old winemaking, this Riesling has a beguiling fragrance of tropical fruit and smoke. It's seductive ripe, round flavors, with layers of mineral, are concentrated and easily fill the palate. A profound Riesling, truly expressive and one-of-a-kind. Don't miss this!
