“Here, try this, Mr. Peterson.”

“SMAAARAAAAAAAGD. Hot damn, son, I’m sorry you had to see that. I don’t know what came over me.”

It’s Austrian rizza at its finest. A wondrous balance of lazer-powered acidity, flamboyant stone fruit, evocatively wet mountain slate and cool fog blowing over a frozen lake. Despite the language in common, these are miles apart (literally) from their German cousins. There’s something more tangible, more ‘get-able’,  more enjoyable about the Austrians in my book. This’ll still age marvellously, but there’s plenty of charm to be enjoyed right now. Maybe try the first sip alone, though. Save yourself some embarrassment.
