NO BRAINER CLUB 6 BOTTLES FOR $100

Tasting Alzinger Durnstein Riesling

Regular price $2.99

Leo Alzinger Jr took over the family domaine in 2002 after returning from harvest in New Zealand. Prior to that he traveled to other regions to gain more experience and was fortunate to spend time with legendary winemaker Hans Günter Schwarz just prior to his retirement in 2002.  “The most significant experience came with my work in the Pfalz at Müller-Catoir in the vintage 2000. Hans Günter Schwarz revealed things in the cellar, small details that gave stronger impressions of vineyard and place. He taught me not to be afraid of skin contact, that good grapes will give good phenols, for example. How important work with the lees is and many other things.”

​​Spontaneously fermented in stainless steel. Elevage in steel with a small amount of neutral Austrian oak. Always crystal clear, animating and wholesome, herbs, citrus and fresh stone fruit. Playful but substantial texture, inviting acid kick, drinkable early on and yet with potential.
