Irresistibly dominated by fresh lime, ginger, and nutmeg, as well as bracingly bright, this represents a very Riesling-like rendition of Austria's national grape. Hints of lentil and herb emerge in the sappy, clinging finish to help identify the variety of origin. This should continue to give great pleasure for at least the next three years. Also, take note of the beer bottle cap which is very popular in Austria.
Producer
Auersthal is just barely beyond Vienna’s northern suburbs, in a dead-still little wine village in the Weinviertel.  Hofer belongs to a group called Bio-Ernte which has standards above the EU guidelines.  The vineyards lie in a rain-shadow and have to endure hot summers. In fact Hofer plants his Riesling in a fog-pocket as he gets so little rain. The wines are pressed conventionally (no whole-cluster) with skin contact, and all whites are done in stainless steel.
