Knoll Riesling Smaragd 'Schutt' Wachau 2016
Weingut Emmerich Knoll is a third-generation estate comprised of 15 hectares across the Wachau. Fruit grows on steep, terraced vineyards, creating some of the best expressions of Riesling & Gruner Veltliner in the world. The estate’s ‘Schutt’ Riesling comes from one of the Wachau’s best growing sites, creating a zesty, textured wine full of lemon, lime, and wet rock flavors, marked by distinct mineral-laced undertones.
