Prager, Riesling, Smaragd, Achleiten 2004

Full yellow.

Opened two days ago. Nose of spicy grapefruit/lemon marmalade and wax. Deep.

Extremely concentrated in the mouth. Full-bodied. Mineral/tannic chew counters richness immediately. Huge for Riesling. Finish of mineral/citrus "chew" doesn't seem to end. Wild, killer, Riesling that will win converts with red wine only types.

$40. From one of Austria's greatest vineyards (Achleiten).
