The Kögl vineyard is right behind the city of Krems, a steep schist slope facing the Danube river, perfect for Riesling. This is a hugely rich wine, its richness giving a creamy, full-bodied character, intense with its flavors of white pears, tropical fruits and spice. It should age well over the next 10 years. Glass stopper.
