Why this wine made the cut…
Prager is one of the O.G.'s of Austrian Riesling, and this is an attractive example.

100% REES-ling
Riesling is one of the greatest, long-lived white wines in the world, highly expressive of the nuances of its respective terroir. The wines are generally relatively low to moderate in alcohol with crisp acidity and full of flavor and extract. Stylistically, it can vary from bone dry to quite sweet, and with age can develop intense aromatics. Because Riesling is so expressive of the terroir from where it is grown, it can show a potential mix of floral, fruity, intensely mineral, smoky and/or spicy aromas and flavors depending on the soil, climate, and exposure.

Weingut Prager

Wachau

Weingut Prager was founded as far back as 1715 but, under Franz Prager and Toni Bodenstein, who married Franz’s daughter Ilse, the winery was elevated to one of Austria’s highest levels of quality.

Prager is 17.5 hectares of 60% riesling and 40% grüner veltliner planted at extremely high densities of 15,000 plants per hectare. These high-altitude terraced vineyards of rocky soil are subject to a cool microclimate that provides for a long growing season. All grapes are hand-picked, eliminating any botrytis, and fermented in stainless steel. 

The winemaking motto at Prager is: “from rock to wine.” The focus is to exhibit the best expression of the soil, climate, and exposure of this unique terroir.
