"Offers a rich mouthfeel, with unctuous flavors of white currant, peach and ruby grapefruit that glide across the palate. Shows hints of chamomile and chai as well, leading to a long finish that features citrus zest notes. Drink now through 2022. 15 cases imported." ~ KM

The soil in the Tiefenthal vineyard is loess with south-east exposure. The Buchegger family has been making Riesling from this plot since 1965.

The Bucheggers are proud that their vines have been around since before scientists were working on clonal breeding and proud also that their vines are all massale selection-- and have been from the time the winery was established. Walter Buchegger makes very classic style wines. He likes to push ripeness and power, but always without botrytis. Walter likes his wines to be clean, fruity, and easy to drink.

5/5 stars
Rare Riesling From Austria - This dry Riesling from Austria exhibits notes of lime and green tea on the nose and crisp green apple on the palate. A perfect pairing for holiday cuisine, be sure to get your hands on a bottle while you can- this extremely low production, family grown white is sure to sell out quickly.
4/5 stars
grows on you... - A bit austere at first, but it opens up nicely in the glass. Perhaps we should have decanted it? Very nice with asian food.

Surprising, refreshing! - Not what we generally drink, so a very delightful first encounter! Enough acid for a hot day, and enough fruit and green tea notes for slow sipping.
