Weingut Jäger Ried Achleiten Riesling Smaragd 2010 - Dry
100% Riesling. Weingut Jäger is a 5th generation estate located in the hamlet of Weissenkirsch in the southern Wachau. It is a tiny, five-hectare estate comprised of some of the best vineyard sites in this appellation, including Klaus and Achleiten. The trellised vineyards run steeply along the Wachau, following her contours and turns. The style of the wines is a perfect example of less is more. The wines are fermented in stainless steel, except in the rare vintage where they have enough to fill an old large oak barrel. This bottle contains a full, multi-layered Riesling that has a delicate smoky note, highly ripe stone fruits like apricots, but yet also has elegance and finesse. A typical wine from the Achleiten vineyard. This wine is an example of how Jäger crafts transparent representations of some of the greatest terroirs of the Wachau.
