Weszeli specializes in site specific and vineyard designated Grüner Veltliner and Riesling from their 30 hectares of estate grown vines. This 2015 Loiserberg Riesling offers a beautifully fragrant and intoxicating nose of fresh, juicy stone fruits, predominantly peach and apricot, with hints of sweet Meyer lemon and mandarin peel. Flavors of the juiciest, freshly plucked orchard peaches envelop the medium-bodied palate with a lush, expansive and quite fleshy texture. The intense fruitiness and weight is pleasantly balanced by a crisp acidity and classic wet stone minerality which comes through especially as the wine opens up a bit. There is great complexity in this wine and beguiling fruit flavors that evolve in the glass, going from stone fruit to almost tropical with hints of under-ripe mango and green papaya. The finish is pleasantly dry and cleansing, yet not bone dry, with that refreshing mineral crispness. Our Ferry Godmother, Debbie Zachareas found this wine on a buying trip to Austria last year and we happen to think it’s one of the best Austrian Rieslings we’ve ever tried.
