The Wine

Details

Welschriesling is the light, summery, every day wine on Austrian terraces and in vineyard restaurants (the Heurigen). It is a fruity, fresh and extremely pleasant wine - quite easy drinking. But that doesn't mean it is a boring wine! In the right hands, like here, it brings oodles of fruit in the glass, with apples as the main accent.

Ben says of the 2007 (July 2017): The aromas of apple and citrus are still there in abundance but with more mellow, mature notes of mulch and a touch of honey. In the mouth it is very well balanced but still with plenty of attack and youth, despite its age. This is a perfect summer wine, with fruit, acidity and panache!

Ben says of the 2009 (July 2017): There is quite a difference between this and the 2007, which is quite surprising. I did not expect this wine to be quite so fresh and youthful. It has far more 'zing' to it than the 2007. The nose does not have the mulch of the 2007 but still has plenty of fruit. In the mouth it is crisper, with more apparent acidity and a longer finish. As with its older sibling, perfect for summer drinking.

Flo says of the 2009 (July 2018): This wine still zings with crisp acidity balanced with vibrant fruit, considering its age it is still youthful and ideal for drinking in the summer heat. Notes of green apple and citrus linger on the tongue long after your last taste

Plain drinking in a good way

Welschriesling

The 2007 - First time with this type and I’d agree with the notes – If in the mood for something nice, easy drinking and straight forward that doesn’t demand attention with complexity this hits the spot. The ageing has added depth and for Austrian wines also a bit of a bargain.

variety:Welschriesling
last checked in:2017-07-05

tasting notes:

It is always interesting going through the arduous task of tasting wines to be sure that they still have the quality to remain on the website.

I admit that I held little hope for the Welschriesling 2007. How wrong I was!

A lovely green apple nose, a hint of rhubarb and slight tertiary notes of herbs and leaf mulch. The green apple continues on the tongue with sherbet and lychees coming through in the finish.

This wine has no right to be this good but it really is!

tasting notes:

Tasting this alongside the 2007 we expected little difference between the two. Once again, we were proved very wrong.

The nose is rich and deep with masses of green apple and a honey-like background that seems sweet but really isn't. (This tasting lark is not always that easy!)

The richness continues on to the palette, giving a textural depth that was quite unexpected. The green apple continues to predominate and the mouthwatering acidity is perfect.
