In the glass, the Riesling Passion Reserve from Weingut Pfaffl shows a dense pale yellow color. After the first swirl, this white wine reveals a high viscosity, which is evident in clear church windows at the edge of the glass. This single varietal Austrian wine flatters the glass with wonderfully expressive notes of pink grapefruit, kumquats, honeysuckle and lime. These are joined by hints of sun-warmed rock and forest floor.
This Austrian wine delights with its elegantly dry flavor. It was bottled with 6.8 grams of residual sugar. As you would naturally expect from a wine icon wine segment, this Austrian naturally enraptures with the finest balance for all its dryness. Excellent taste does not necessarily need a lot of sugar. With its vital fruit acidity, the Riesling Passion Reserve reveals itself wonderfully fresh and lively on the palate. The finish of this youthful white wine from the wine-growing region of Lower Austria finally convinces with a beautiful reverberation. The finish is also accompanied by mineral notes of the soils dominated by sand and clay.
