Knoll Riesling Smaragd Wachau 2016
Weingut Emmerich Knoll is a third-generation winery, farming 15 hectares of vines in the heart of the Wachau. Their Gruner Veltliner and Riesling grow on steep, terraced vineyards, producing legendary cuvées, deemed some of the best expressions of Riesling & GV in the world. The 2016 Smaragd Riesling is energetic and lively, with notes of wet stone, tart apple, and lemon-like acidity dominating the palate. Great with fresh seafood or tacos!
