Tasting Notes

From out of nowhere this has become the best Muscat I offer from Austria, a wine which is only ostensibly “simple” but which has layers of something akin to minerality. This ’15 is fabulous, one of the ladylike vintages but with mineral out the wazoo, especially into the endless finish. It’s blossomy but funky blossoms, not the well-behaved ones; a “sweet” mid-palate feels weightless but endless, and the wine is both spicy and floral; uncanny in a dozen ways, this little guy…. – Terry Theise
