Natalie's Score: 90/100

Remarkably flavourful and full-bodied, especially for Riesling. Then again, the alcohol on this is an unusual 14% for Riesling. It doesn't taste heavy or hot at all, just rich, round and mouth-filling. Aromas of white peach and golden apple. Pair with roast chicken.

Reviews and Ratings

Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Nice yellow robe (with tartric deposit). Aromas of honey and silex. Beautiful mouth with lenght and plenty of matter. A little residual sugar but compensated with a nice acidity. A great wine at a more than reasonable price. Grab some! Would be great with thai food.
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

An aromatic Riesling from Mollands, Kamptal DAC, Austria, giving honey, peach, lemon and delicate mineral notes on nose and palate. Extra-dry with mouth-watering acidity.
Tasted March 2017
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

There's lots of classic Riesling notes going on here, with a little bit of petrol creeping in after 6 years. Great delineation and an almost creamy mouthfeel. 90 points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
Olivier de Maisonneuve rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Richer hue than i'm used to for a riesling. Fruity yes,but with distinctly wet stone aromas too. Riper mouthfeel than i expected,almost creamy.
I 'd try it with Boursain or a fluffy chives and cream cheese
petits fours. Tasty!
Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Pale lemon in colour. Elegant nose featuring floral, honeyed notes with green apple nuances. Firm acidity balances the subtle sweetness nicely. The mid-palate is smooth, moderately concentrated with bright apple, apricot flavours. Slightly bitter on the finish.
Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Medium intensity aroma of peaches, white spicy flowers, honey. Medium mouthfeel. Well balanced crisp and long acidity supporting tree fruit flavours. Score 88. (S.Segard, reviewed March 26, 2017)
Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This Austrian Riesling is light straw in colour with aromas of peach, honeysuckle, lemon, apple and spice with the peach and honeysuckle following through on the palate. This is light bodied with crisp acidity. This will pair nicely with Asian dishes. (Tasted on March 26, 2017)
Philippe Perreault, Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

deep yellow color with notes of petroleum,mineral, stone and nuts.
This wine is medium, lively and light bodied.

Serve it at 12-13 degrees.
Ready to drink.
