Just a lick of reductive flint still plays on the citrusy nose. The palate reveals a riper streak of tangerine and Mandarin, as well as lovely, pithy, zesty concentration. Yet there is something light-footed and juicy about this. A fitting composition that unites ease and stoniness. ANNE KREBIEHL MW
The vineyards of Steinertal form a giant Amphitheatre cut into the solid rock. Facing South East and surrounded by massive rock formations, the vineyards offer themselves a spectacular view. At night, a cold North wind blows across the Steinertal vineyards. The terraces appear like stony tiers, symmetrically grown out of the rock itself, they are covered with a soft layer of sand – ideal conditions for vines. A native of this environment, the Riesling Steinertal Smaragd® appears like a refined artist.

It is characterized by a noble fragility and plays many different roles when consumed. At times tart and salty, at times reminiscent of peaches, each sip creates a new association. The Riesling Smaragd® from Steinertal polarizes and the vineyard itself leaves its mark more than any other cru in the Wachau - pure & straight!food pairingroasted vegetables, rice dishes and pastaideal temperature to drink45-50 °F
