Wachau Smaragd is of course the highest level of dry white Austrian wine, and this one is a beauty. 

In fact, when we all tried it (and we drink a lot of these wines), none of us could believe just how ridiculously delicious this is. But then Martin Mittlebach speaks in wondrously awed tones about the 2019 vintage, surely the finest of his career. 

At 94 points, this is his top Smaragd from this great vineyard, named for a local monk who was beloved for helping children and the poor. The Wine Enthusiast, which prices this at $34 (a bargain for a top Wachau Smaragd like this), says:

The aromas on the nose are subdued, giving a slight hint of yeast. The slender yet concentrated palate holds yeasty, salty promise and comes with a slightly pithy texture. This is still tightly coiled and needs to unfold, but freshness and savoriness will stand it in good stead. Drink 2022–2040

It's actually showing a lot richer (even creamier but very dry) than when she tasted it, but as she says, it will also age incredibly.

Best price anywhere, too.

You’re going to have to fight us for this one!
