Alzinger's expression of Riesling and Gruner Veltliner from Austria's Wachau stands out for its shimmering complexity and poise. Wines across Leo Alzinger's range posses a rare combination of power and mineral grace. Botrytis is avoided at picking in order to showcase the clearest possible expression of terroir. And wines are fermented dry. The completely south-facing Loibenberg vineyard produces his most powerful Riesling, but the mineral edge and Leo's delicate touch make it perfectly balanced. 2013 has shaped up to be perhaps the greatest vintage in the Wachau in 15 years.
Steely but full bodied, petrol notes. Delicious like an Alsatian

More exuberant (a bit) than the Hollerin, but still tight and wanting much time.
