Austria — Niederösterreich • $19.95 • 89/100

This is the result of a collaboration between winemaker Gerhard Kracher and sommelier Aldo Sohm. The wine undergoes spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel, and remains on lees for one year before bottling. It is a lighter straw-yellow colour, with notes of lemon, honeydew melon, and red apple, suggestions of white flowers and an underlying earthiness. The palate has a subtle generosity balanced by crisp acidity, pleasant citrus-apple fruit, and that hint of earthiness underpins the firm, stony finish. An excellent value. • Tasted 2017-06-24 • LCBO id#492918 • Find it at your nearest LCBOPHILIPPE DANDURAND WINES LTD. (Agent)
