Product Description

A wine that really showcases the free-thinking, experimental and provocative side of Toni Bodenstein. 
Planted in 1990 in a high-altitude section of the Hinterseiber vineyard (literally bordering the forest at the top of the mountain), this was planted at an altitude of about 1,500 feet (between 440-460 meters). Many people doubted that the vineyard would be able to fully ripen Riesling. Over 10 years later, not only does the vineyard produce incredibly elegant and mineral wines, but while others have problems with over-ripening, the Bodenstein wines, even in hot vintages like 2003 and 2006, are balanced and elegant. Anytime you see the “Bodenstein" moniker, you should know that one of the points of the wine is to showcase genetic diversity. Bodenstein planted the vineyard with 15 different types of Riesling sourced from the Wachau as well as Germany's Rheingau, Mosel and Pfalz and France's Alsace. This is, year in and year out, one of the top Rieslings from Austria.

Hyacinth, lime, honey, and white peach emanate from the glass of 2007 Riesling Smaragd Wachstum Toni Bodenstein. One sip will convince you that this sappy wine of enveloping richness could only come from an exceptional site. Furthermore, your powers of imagination would have to be dead, I suspect, not to start babbling about rocks and stones, because they seem to pave the bed on which this torrent of fruits and flowers flows. Suggestions of tart blueberry skin and pungent lime zest enliven a long, rich, buoyant finish. This harbors huge phenolic intensity yet is almost soothing in its opulence; is dense, yet refreshing. Follow it wherever it leads, for at least the next 8-10 years. 95 points Wine Advicate
