"This one-off bottling brings together the 2016 yields from Bruck with those from Buschenberg. “It made no sense to bottle Bruck separately given how little fruit as there was,” explained Malberg. “But also, whereas Buschenberg usually features a must with lots of sugar and a wine with corresponding body, this year, due to the delayed ripening, its musts tasted more like those from Bruck.” The sweetly perfumed nose features linden-garlanded ripe quince and honeydew melon, anticipating the generous, luscious fruitiness exhibited on a lush, silken, palpably extract-rich palate. A bright, juicy squeeze of fresh lime enhances the animation and refreshment delivered on the lingering finish." -- David Schildknecht, Vinous

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

"Sourced from the Bruck and the Buschenberg, the 2016 Wachauer Riesling von 2 Terrassen 2B is intensely fruity, concentrated and spicy, very coolish and provided with fragrant quince aromas. Very elegant and piquant on the palate, this is a lean and fine but firm, tight, fresh and well-structured Riesling with a piquant and fresh finish. Not that complex and powerful but with great finesse and the lightness of 12% alcohol."
