The gentlest fruit, the ripest notions, the freshest palate: there is something about the Traisental wines that strikes you as more filigree than the rest of Austria. This Riesling is a case in point with very fine-boned, clearly delineated citrus fruit. Seville orange peel and ripe tangerine makes this a subtle joy.
