Wine Review: 2011 Salomon Reserve Riesling

2011 Salomon Reserve Riesling, Undhof Steiner Kögl Kremstal DAC

The Salomon Reserve Riesling has a lot going on and it is evident the crystalline shist soil and southern facing vineyards where this wine originates reflects what is in the bottle. The 50-year old vines planted in the rocky soils of the historic town of Stein sits in the Kremstal wine region in Austria, known for producing aromatic, lovely Riesling. The 2011 Salomon Reserve Riesling produces a rich and concentrated white with superb layers of minerality with a touch of white peach. Expressive and lively, it is a wine worth seeking out.

Rating: Excellent (92) | $30 | 13.5% ABV
