The 2022 Riesling Achleiten Smaragd opens with a flinty, smoky aspect before its citrus focus kicks in. The palate is light and transparent, with a lovely fill of fruit held in a tight and stony frame. Gazelle-like, this is incredibly stone-like in nature. It embodies that stoniness in its sleekness—ethereal and lifted, but anchored by minerality. This is a picture of stony, profound exactitude. (Bone-dry)
