Weingut Eder 2006 Wachau Riesling Smaragd

Smaragd is a Wachau ripeness level roughly similar to Germany's Auslese, but vinified quite dry.

Deep golden straw color.

Smell of apple, melon, ripe peach, and warm summer breeze through a wildflower meadow.

Flavors of peach and apple, rich, dry, big ripe fruit.

Rich medium-to-full bodied bottle for $24.27. Does what Chardonnay never can for a wine & cheeser! It took me a while to learn to appreciate bone-dry Riesling, but I find that Austria can do some wonderful work in that regard!
