Description

Nikolaihof Vom Stein Riesling Federspiel

Impressive and singular dry Riesling from one of the most historically significant estates in Austria. For this particular Federspiel, Nikolaihof sources fruit from the Vom Stein (a sub-site of Silberbichel), which has gneiss, mica, and loess soils. 

This beautiful Riesling from Nikolaihof offers a very pretty bouquet, showing pretty scent of citrus fruits, lemon curd and apricot. It is incredibly fresh with sweet notes of honey and brioche and a subtle anise underpin. It is bright and juicy with the sweetness of fruits and stimulating acidity. Great pleasure in the mouth as the juiciness flirts with the tongue with a touch of spice. The low alcohol contributes to the palate's desire for more and for the accompaniment of a cuisine that seems as aromatic and original as the wine itself.
