This is my first experience with Austrian wine, since my early years of wine learning were when Austria was still suffering from a tainted wine scandal.
Very pale straw color.
Full-bodied smell, melon and apple, floral hints.
Melon and apple flavors dominate the fruity dry flavor, medium bodied, pear and flint flavors develop. Touch of petillance.
A very good bottle for $16.95. More body than I'd been lead to expect, but still graceful. This is a Terry Theise Estate Selection, which I've learned is a mark of certain excellence in German wines, I see no reason to doubt this does not extend to his selections from outside Germany.
