Grade: 
A-

Another winner from Knoll in the excellent 2021 vintage.  Silvery gold in color, clear and bright.  The nose has asparagus, and white pepper.  Light tannins.  On the palate, this has concentrated lime notes.  A bit of asparagus on the finish.  Long.  Deep.  Well balanced.  This would go well with lighter foods or even a not too spicy Chinese pork dish.  Drink over the next seven to ten years.

Light silvery gold in color, clear and bright.  The nose is great with slight limes, asparagus and a slight white pepper.  Medium bodied.  On the palate, lemon/lime notes.  Good acidity.  Some minerality.  Deep.  Long finish.  This is light on its feet but serious enough to stand up to moderately heavy foods.  It would be nice with fish tacos.  Drink over the next seven to ten years.

Green gold in color, clear and bright.  The nose is nice with limes and white pepper.  Medium bodied.  Good acidity.  Depth.  On the palate, limes and some minerality.  Dry.  Long finish.  Very similar to the Steinfeder version just more of everything.  This is great on its own and will work well with most lighter foods.  Thai food would be a nice match.  Drink over the next three to five years.

Steinfeder is the lowest category in the ripeness classification of white wines in Austria's Wachau Valley. It means the wines have a mandated maximum alcohol level of 11.5 percent.  The result is that the wines have a lighter body and tend to drink easier and sooner.  Silvery gold in color, clear and bright.  The nose has limes and slight white pepper.  Medium bodied.  On the palate, tart limes.  Good acidity.  Long finish.  This is very food friendly and would go well with pasta primavera.  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.
