Details

This is really a perfect introduction to Austrian Riesling - focuses, crisp and zingy

It's a very pretty wine.

From Kamptal you expect citrus, peaches and white flowers, with a lot of dry "licking rocks" minerality. And that is exactly what you get.

Fist, it is fresh. The young vintages will wake you up, the older vintages mellow and widen a little. But this is an acidity that is bright and pleasant, nothing harsh about it.

The fruit is round and clean, and the minerality makes it feel cleaners yet. The finish is very long especially considering it is a "classic" entry level wine. 

Because it is so focused it is also very flexible - you can drink it as an aperitif well chilled, but it goes with a lot of food. Just make sure you pick dishes that aren't ruined by acidity (not sushi or sashimi, for example)

Serving Suggestions:

An obvious match is with classic austrian fare like Schnitzel, loaded canapes or knoedel. Thai flavours, especially the thai salads and coconut based curries, are also a lovely match. As it cuts through fried food fantastically, we love it with savoury fried dishes like scotch eggs or whitebait, though is perhaps too fresh for subtle tempura.

Riesling Classic

The 2014 - When drinking it reminded me a little of those fizzy sherbert lemon dips at the start. A long lasting wine which when had with food saw some peach coming through. I found this strong in crisp and acidic department. As described.
