More about this wine

Considered one of the best rieslings in the world by those in the know. Sells for over $80 in New York and yes, once the wine reaches a certain age, the Americans come and grab it all from me. Don't let them! In 2014 the weather conditions caused so many problems to the Riesling vineyards that there were insufficient grapes to make enough Smaragd Riesling. Consequently, the quality of the Riesling Reserve 2014 is much higher than usual as the grapes that might have been included in the Smaragd wines are all in the Reserve.
