“The 2005 Riesling Smaragd Loibnerberg displays the deep, refined, dynamic character that the Steinertal lacks. Lemon and orange scent the nose, with a hint of tobacco suggestive of Gruner Veltliner and of litchi suggestive of Traminer. In the mouth, this is faintly oily in texture but sleek and bright, with a fascinating interplay of orange, peach, tart red fruits, spices, and salt, wet stone and ore-like minerality. For all of its ripeness and opulence, this carries only 13.5% alcohol, and displays lift and refinement in a superbly long, oscillating finish of fruit, spice, and mineral. Daniel Thomases, WA #166.

“Pale green-yellow. Dominant aroma of blossom honey over a discreet background of stone fruits. Wonderfully complex and extremely deep, with a pronounced minerality and perfectly integrated acidity. Very concentrated wine, finishing with explosive flint, spice and kaffir lime character. This still needs a year or so to truly begin to blossom. Drink 2008 to 2015+.” Peter Moser, Nov. / Déc. 2006.

"Beschreibung: Wunderschön klare, blitzsaubere Nase, ein Hauch Eisbonbons zur fein steinobstigen Frucht; wunderbar tiefer, saftiger Fruchtglanz, dezente Dunkelbeerenaromen.” ALC, 2007.
