Alzinger ‘Steinertal' Riesling Smaragd 2021 94WA
96 points Stu Piggot
How can a wine that’s cool and green be so ripe and deep? This finely chiseled beauty proves that this is not only possible, but can also be very attractive. What a beautiful texture this great dry riesling has. It reminds me of the feel of raw silk. Super-long, crushed-rock finish that pulls you inexorably back for more. Drink or hold.

The 2021 Ried Steinertal Loibner Riesling Smaragd is excitingly pure, intense and rocky on the nose that reveals clear, bright fruit intertwined with some savory and iodine notes. Medium-bodied, elegant and juicy on the palate, this is a tight and intense Riesling from the Loibner Steinertal with a saline and minerally tensioned finish. 13% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted in October 2022.
