2020 Tegernseerhof Neuburger Schmalix Edition Smaragd, Austria, Wine Review

Vintage:

Grade: 
B+

Neuburger is a white Austrian wine grape. The grape is a crossing of Roter Veltliner and Sylvaner.  From a vineyard near the town of Elsam.  Yellow gold in color, clear and bright.  The nose is interesting.  A sort of "yellow currant."  Good acidity.  Nice texture.  The yellow berry quality continues thru to the palate, but slight bitter note on the finish.  Overall a nice wine that is just a bit different.  It seems food friendly and would work with lighter foods.  Drink over the next few years.

Medium golden in color, clear and bright.  The nose has slight smoke with asparagus and slight white pepper.  Nice mouthfeel.  Good acidity.  Lime zest with nice minerality on the palate.  Long finish.  Drinking well now on its own.  This will work well with a wide variety of foods.  Veal chops would work well.  Drink over the next five to seven years.

Very nice showing for this wine.  Golden in color, clear and bright.  The nose has limes, smoke/sulfur and slight white pepper.  Medium bodied.  Moderate acidity.  On the palate, lime with some hay notes.  Really pleasant, long finish.  The acidity here helps this become more food friendly although it still drinks well on its own.  It will work well with fried chicken and other fried foods.  Drink over the next five to seven years.

Yellow/gold in color, clear and bright.  The nose shows smoke/sulfur which partially blows off.  Limes and slight white pepper come out.  Medium bodied.  Velvety texture.  Low acidity.  On the palate, minerals with slight limes and a hint of herbs.  This drinks easily on its own.  Drink over the next few years.

Yellow/green in color, clear and bright.  The nose has limes, herbs, and white pepper.  Medium bodied.  Good acidity.  On the palate, this seems to have slight residual sugar.  Lime with fresh herbs.  This is refreshing and quite tasty.  Nice finish.  This drinks well on its own and would work well with foods that have a slight amount of spice/heat such as Szechwan.  Drink over the next five to seven years.

This is a 50/50 blend of Zweigelt and Pinot Noir.  Pale, silvery/salmon pink in color, clear and bright.  The nose is tight with some watermelons.  Moderate acidity. On the palate, watermelon and slight strawberry notes.  Clean.  Some heat on the finish.  A fine wine to sip with lunch or on the deck.  It will work well with  lighter foods.  Chicken salad would work well.
