Welcome to the riesling desert island! Super-ripe with a wealth of orange, a hint of mango aromas and a lot of power. Stunning freshness at the long, full finish. Better from 2018, but there's no hurry to drink this.
A faint, flinty touch of reduction still informs this wine's lifted citrus scents. On the palate, a taut, textured structure sends zesty lemon flavors darting across the tongue. This still needs to open up, but all the ingredients for an explosive citrus party are here. It has concentration, freshness, fruit and potential. This may become smoother but will remain beautifully slender. Drink 2020–2035. (AK)
The 2016 Ried Loibenberg Riesling Smaragd is stunningly precise, cool and fresh on the nose where mango, passion fruit and yellow nectarine flavors are displayed. On the palate, this is a full-bodied, piquant and concentrated Riesling with a tight structure, lovely grip and tension from healthy, crisp skins. This is a great Loibenberg that just needs 5-7 years to shine. (SR)
A floral style, exhibiting lavender, passion fruit and apricot flavors, while the acidity cuts through midpalate, making this firm and focused, leaving a minerally impression before the dry, mouthwatering finish takes over. A bit tight at the moment, but the components are there. Give this a few years to unravel. (AZ)
Quite rich but with great density and refreshment value. Crunchy fruit and very fresh. 17/20 points (JR)
