Welschriesling Vom Opok 2020

$26.95 Sale Save


Give Spring a Warm Welcome with Welschriesling™. Not bad, eh Styrian Ministry of Public Relations? Because let's be real, the PR for Welschriesling needs help. When most people hear of the grape variety, they think something along the lines of, "maybe that's just a weird kind of Riesling." (Nope.) In reality, it's the brightest, flower-iest bundle of springtime joy since Daylight Savings time. Opening the Tauss' rendition is like watching a field of crocuses flower overnight. It's like drinking the spring rains from the stem of a lily. There's also something vaguely creamy about this wine that suggests a soft cheese with flower petals in the rind (Google Alp Blossom). Dust off the picnic blanket.
