Kremstalian Demeter certified Nicky Moser, makes a fine zweigelt and pinot. Yes, he was fascinated with a wine that was not his. This was something from the OTHER Salamon not imported into the US by TT, Fritz. "My wife will bring us down a bottle," he said.
He was far more interested in tasting me on his friends wines than his. When does this ever happen? The wine it turns out was a no -sulfur wine being made by Fritz since.....1995!!!
"I serve it by the glass in my restaurant," says Fritz, "They buy it because it's cheap. No one ever buys the bottle."
Yet is was that riesling that Nicky and I loved. Just loved. It might have been one of the most enjoyable swirl and spits of my visit. Butterscotch nose, seaweed, umami, smoky, tangy, brimming with piss and vinegar.Touch of honey and long lasting. Admittedly, this was a very hard act for the Moser wines to follow. And Nicky is trying. He wants to go towards no -sulfur wines and Fritz is his inspiration. Hence his Minimal wines.
Only sulfur at bottlings, 10 mg total.
