2017 Riesling Weinviertel ''De Vite'' (Minkowitsch, Roland)

Ronald Minkowitsch, Riesling "De Vite", Weinviertel, Austria 2017

{organic} 100% Riesling

LEMON & GOLDEN APPLE, LIQUID MINERAL ELEGANCE, RACY & RIPE

From the far northeastern reaches of Austria, the sprawling Weinviertel region, this generous dry Riesling balances characteristic brightness with a, perhaps, somewhat unexpected impression of roundness & juiciness (maybe courtesy, in part, of the 50 year-old vines employed) given these climes’ reputation for leaner, more herbaceous stylings. The label sports the distinction “Rheinriesling,” but don’t be confused as this term is helpful here and in Czecchia’s Moravia to the north to distinguish from the unrelated Croatian native, Welschriesling, whose presence is significant in this part of Austria.

Serving Suggestion: Crisp-skinned, panfried trout w/ parsley, lemon, butter, & potato salad w/ dill & sour cream. Thick, hearty butternut squash soup w/ cream cheese, marjoram, cinnamon, & cayenne.
