Karl Fritsch Organic Riesling Mordthal 2019
Elegant with honey blossom and minerality and a slight sweetness
Region | Lower Austria, Wagram
Grape Variety | Riesling
One of the finest white grapes of them all, Riesling is floral, with high acidity, and can be bone-dry as well as extremely sweet. Tremendous ageing potential.
Style | Fresh & Light
A wine that is light bodied and under 12.5% alcohol with medium to high acidity and delicate primary fruity aromas. Think varietal expression, fruit purity and precision rather than emphasis on wine making i.e battonage, reduction, oak, lees contact. These are refreshing wines with wide appeal. Typical tasting note expressions are ‘crisp’, ‘fresh’, ‘zesty’, ‘cool climate’, ‘purity of fruit’, ‘lean’. In its simplest form a light bodied wine would be equivalent to ‘skimmed’ milk and a full- bodied wine equivalent to blue-top, ‘whole fat’ milk. If your preference is for lighter bodied wines, look out for these grape varieties – young Gruner Veltliner, young Riesling, Pinot Bianco/Blanc, Frappato, unaged Chardonnay, Cinsault (whites), Pinot Noir, Gamay, Kadarka (reds).
