Esterhazy - St. Georgener Ried Schildten 2018
Producer: Esterhazy
Wine name: St. Georgener Ried Schildten
Classification: Leithaberg DAC
ABV: 14.5

A wine that initially conceals its heft and ripeness, showing some cassis and dark cherry on the nose. But then the palate kicks in with a lot of extraction, woodsmoke and woody tannins – and there is quite a belt of alcohol on the finish.
While it shows some typical fruit character, this isn’t an elegant or balanced style in my opinion.
