Wine Advocate 94 points - Rudi Pichler’s bright, stony/spicy 2013 Riesling Smaragd Wosendorfer Kirchweg is sourced from weathered gneiss soils and delivers an elegant, very mineral and fresh, full-bodied Riesling with great aging potential. With crushed rocks and lemon flavors on the nose, this is a very pure and complex Riesling with a great personality and persistent piquancy.
Wine Spectator 91 points - Offers a lush, spicy aroma, followed by silky, refined flavors of peach, Fuji apple and Bosc pear. Gooseberry and delicate floral notes provide added zest. Lemon curd accents power the crisp finish. Drink now through 2020. 28 cases imported.
