Weingut Knoll Weingut Knoll 1994 Ried Pfaffenberg Steiner (Austria) Riesling Spätlese ($19.99)
Clear, pale gold, showing lovely scents of honey and wildflowers. Rich, full and dry, tart cooking apples and citric acidity on the palate. U.S. importer: Milton S. Kronheim & Co. Inc., Washington, D.C.; a Terry Theise Estate Selection. (Nov. 16, 1999)

FOOD MATCH: Fine with a simple veal stew with cauliflower.

Weingut Knoll 1994 Loibner Schütt (Austria) Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Trocken ($21.99)
Clear light gold, with ripe aromas of overripe melons, honey and long-cooked green peas. Full-bodied, almost unctuous, white fruit and green-pea flavors mirroring the aromas. Full and rich in a long finish. Very interesting wine, but seems a little less structured and minerally than I expect from Knoll. Good, not great, at least at this stage in its life. U.S. importer: Milton S. Kronheim & Co. Inc., Washington, D.C.; a Terry Theise Estate Selection. (Nov. 23, 1999)

FOOD MATCH: Works to wash down riso maria, a country Italian risotto-like dish of rice cooked with spinach, eggs and cheese.

Previous day's wine note

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
