Welschriesling Freyheilt (Orange Wine), 2016

11.5%

750 ml

Varietals: Welschriesling

Region: Burgenland

Tasting notes:
Erase expectations from the past and begin willing and able with a clean slate. The Welschriesling Freyheit appears in a brilliant new form, bucking dusty traditions of the supposed “bread and butter” variety. With a proudly lifted chin, it opens the ball with a splendid dance of green-yellow fruits, refreshing grassy notes and ethereal herbs and spices that culminate in an unexpected salty aftertaste that never seems to end. Thanks to a taut frame of delicate tannins and the inherent freshness of a yeasty veil, this wine immediately distances itself from the classic and pleases with a spontaneous freestyle interpretation of the Welschriesling grape. Indeed a completely different world.
