Bright golden color. Aromas of toasty hazelnut brittle, pineapple cake, and stewed apples with a fruity medium-to-full body and a juicy, creme brulee and spice accented finish. A rich, fruity oak-influenced late harvest styled riesling that is sure to please.

Austrian Riesling is among the most distinctive in the world. As Austria is a cool climate, Riesling performs extremely well here, especially in regions such as Kamptal and Wachau in eastern Austria.

Just as in Germany, there are various categories for sweetness with Austrian Rieslings, such as trocken (dry) or halb-trocken *half dry." Austria also has designations for extremely sweet Rieslings, such as Beerenauslese and Trockenbeerenauslese.

The best Austrian Rieslings offer a remarkable array of aromas, from peach and apricot to honey and petrol. Offering excellent natural acidity, Austrian Rieslings, whether dry or sweet age beautifully, from five to seven years for dry versions or as long as twenty or thirty years for sweeter versions.

These wines pair well with a variety of foods, from poultry and pork for dry versions to pear and almond tarts or fresh berries or even foie gras for the sweeter versions.
