Top 10 Wines 2011 (#6) Weingut Knoll Riesling 2004
We celebrated the purchase of our first apartment with this bottle. Not because it is extravagently expensive or because it received 100 points from any particular publication. We celebrated with this bottle because aged Austrian riesling in the United States is difficult to find and has an incredibly special uniqueness.
It was paired with a fairly simple roast chicken and might be the most memorable meal of the year. Check out this link to a longer post about this bottle and our meal that evening. If you ever come across an aged Austrian riesling (or gruner veltliner), particularly from Wachau, shell out whatever the asking price is and prepare for a singularly amazing wine experience.
