From sandy and stony gneiss soils of the cru that is located between the Kellerberg and the Loibenberg, the 2016 Ried Höhereck Riesling Smaragd has a clear and open bouquet of white fleshed fruits intermixed with some iron-flavored stony aromas. Full-bodied, round and very elegant, the wine is provided with delicate acidity as well as finessed and salty minerality that carries this 2016 into a long and fresh finish. This is a pure and tensioned, remarkably good and refreshing Riesling from this small 2.74-hectare cru.See detailed press review

Bright yellow-green, silver reflections. With a touch of meadow herbs underlaid yellow stone fruit nuances, attractive tropical fruit tank length, notes of blossom honey. Juicy, very elegant, fine fruit, integrated acidity, lemony-mineral reverberation, very good length, makes you want more.
