Bründlmayer Ried Zöbinger Heiligenstein 1ÖTW Riesling, Kamptal, Austria
This Reisling may be a young wine, but you'd never know it to taste. The bouquet is pleasantly floral, with a pinch of peach and tropical fruit to provide balance. Upon the palate, Bründlmayer Ried Zöbinger Heiligenstein is undeniably sweet, with distinctly fruity and juicy overtimes, but this is balanced by a sharp acidity. This follows into the finish and aftertaste, which combine sensations of salt, fruit and silk. Best of all, this aftertaste is lengthy and memorable, completing a decadent and desirable wine experience.
WHAT IT GOES WITH
Such a light and refreshing Riesling is the perfect match for chicken and pasta or spicy Asian cuisine
