"This type of Prager's 2013 Riesling Smaragd Klaus is allied to the Achleiten, although cooler, spicier and purer, less fruit-driven. Rich, juicy and piquant on the palate, this full-bodied and well-concentrated wine reveals a great elegance and complexity as well as finesse and drinkability. An impressive, very mineral wine with great aging potential. Drink: 2017-2035. 95 points.

Toni Bodenstein has bottled great Smaragd wines from the 2013 vintage. These are world-class wines and I wonder if there were any better wines produced in this great though difficult vintage. All of his Smaragd wines have a remarkable greenish shimmering white-golden color, which already indicates their reductive style and mineral expression. If you have a chance to taste the Achleiten Stockkultur Grüner Veltliner Smaragd, you should definitely taste it over several days. This might be one of the greatest Gruners I have ever tasted.
