Weingut Georg Schmelzer, Welschriesling, 2018

The Wine: As perfectly balanced and soft as a white wine can be. The first sip gives off the gentlest tropical scents of lime and pineapple, quickly cutting to minerals, before finishing in the smoothest and softest of swallows with a hint of oak finish. It is precise and delicate and shows the true expression of Austrian white wines in their complexity and light pallete. 

The Winemaker: Georg Schmelzer is a fourth-generation natural winemaker. Located near the Hungarian + Slovakian borders he is truly doing things as "naturally" as we define it. He ferments his wine in neutral oak and is an expert with the Welschriesling grape, which has no connection to the well-known Riesling grape from Central Europe. Welschriesling is grown throughout Eastern Europe, most notably in Lake Neusiedl in Austria, where Georg Schmeler’s vineyard sits. 

The Place: Gols, Austria

The Grape: Welschriesling
