Full-bodied fun

I’ve enjoyed the last couple of Prager wines, so when I saw this in Fortnum’s I thought it well worth a try.

Riesling Smaragd “Stenriegl” 2006, Prager

A highly perfumed nose of wonderful apricot and peach aromas. There is a strong earthiness to this wine, that grounds its more expressive, floral side. This is perfectly balanced. It tastes absoutely fantasic, with its floral, fruity flavours in perfect harmony with is dense, mineral weightiness. This is really lovely, lovely balance and style.
