Winemaker's Tasting Notes
The almost salty minerality makes the Wiltinger Alte Reben finish off-dry even though we left a line of natural residual sweetness. It’s quite dry on the palate and delivers tangy green apple, peach and lemon flavors along with some smokiness. The acidity is spot on. The mouthfeel is smooth. It finishes with lingering lemon, herbs and smoky flavors.
91 Points - Wine Enthusiast
Bold honey and tangerine flavors are catapulted by piercing lemon and pineapple acidity here. While slim in stature, it's an intensely juicy mouthfilling sip edged by shards of steel and slate. Just a whisper of sweetness lingers on the finish. Its peak period is now through 2030.
