This wine was made to make your mouth water. The ripeness, fruit and delicious acidity are balanced to perfection. Great value for such a classy wine.
Winemaking was only a hobby for earlier generations of the family but Andi Knauss knew for a long time that he wanted to become a vigneron. Having trained in Austria, where Andi learned how to work organically in the vineyard, he took over the reins at Weingut Knauss in 2004 and now makes wines from over a hundred different plots in Strumpfelbach.
Riesling Schnait Weingut Knauss, organic, no added sulphur, zippy, fresh, dry, lovely aromatics, classic yet nicely funky. Balanced acidity with a fresh lime twist. Expect hints of pepper, ripe fresh apple and winter spice on the finish. Floral with hints of Blossom and touches of rose. A wine which bounces effortlessly between easy, uncomplicated quaffability and classic Riesling aromatics and complexity. Excellent price for the quality.
