2016 Martin Muthenthaler Ried Bruck Riesling

2016 Martin Muthenthaler Ried Bruck Riesling


Martin is quickly becoming one of the rock star producers of the Wachau region in Austria. He chooses to operate outside the normal classification (based on quality according to alcohol levels). This allows him the freedom to produce wines in the style he decides and focus on expression of site.

The 2016 Ried Bruck Riesling is where things get serious. The wine shows texture, body, intensity, whilst coming in at about 12% alcohol. The concentrated crushed rock, yellow peach and apple character of the wine gives a nod to how this wines is going to develop in the bottle. If you’re going to open this wine today I’d recommend decanting and serving in a larger Burgundy shaped glass to enjoy the full range of aromatics.
