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.
Vom Stein is not technically a vineyard name, but a vineyard territory (cluster of vineyards) once known by this name. Nikolaihof aims to maintain the ancient traditions of this area and retains this name for this wine
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 late release allows longer contact with lees, giving the wine a much more textural sensation, as well as more developed oxidative notes
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.
