  1. Salomon Undhof Gruner Veltliner Wieden 2017 375ml
    Salomon Undhof Gruner Veltliner Wieden 2017 375ml
    Bert Salomon is on a roll, having over the past several years achieved increasingly consistent and impressive results at what was already among the Kremstal’s longstanding best addresses, not to mention among the area’s historical leaders and earliest estate-bottlers of Riesling. DAVID SCHILDKNECHT, Vinous

    Encircled by a massive property wall, the Wieden vineyard adjoins the winery. Vines from the Wieden old Gruner Veltliner rootstocks have also been planted on the terraces of the neighbouring Kreuzberg vineyard and this wine is a blend of the two sites. PWS

    A seriously mineral and herbal grüner veltliner with a very satisfying combination of freshness and substance, the finish very clean but only moderately acidic.   Jamessuckling.com Sept 2018

    From stony and sandy soils in Krems (Wieden, Wachtberg and Kögl, all planted with the old family clone), the 2017 Grüner Veltliner Wieden is ripe, bright and intense on the nose with delicate flinty aromas in the background. Juicy-piquant and mouthfilling, this is an elegant, intense, persistently aromatic and quite powerful but still delicious Veltliner with intense fruit and delicate freshness with grip and stimulating salinity. STEPEHN REINHARDT, The Wine Advocate, Dec 2018.

  2. Pittnauer Pitti Rose 2018
    Pittnauer Pitti Rose 2018
    In a world of overhyped rosé, here's a pristine, flavoursome, tightly focused and refreshing expression from Pittnauer. Its floral bouquet of raspberries, red cherries and a whiff of citrus oil overlies a hint of meatiness. Long and brightly lit, with a juiciness that is never rich or cloying, its charmingly vivacious palate is underpinned by a fine chalkiness, finishing with a tangy, lemony acidity. It's a delightful combination of flavour, freshness and brightness.

  3. Groiss Gruner Veltliner 2020
    Groiss Gruner Veltliner 2020
    What a gorgeous discovery this is! Ingrid Groiss returned to her parents property after studying winemaking has take over the family business since. A taste-off with her fathers wines against hers had her emerge as the clear victor and the family could not be happier.

    All deft touch and instinct, Ingrid's philosophy in grounded on this love of these mature family vineyards. She picks by hand in several passes through the vineyards and ferments the juice using mainly ambient yeast. Oak is only a minor feature, but she makes the most of the fermentation lees to give texture and depth to her wines. PWS

    Notes of green apple, ripe lemon and freshly cut pear flesh are most appetizing on the nose. The palate also brims with citrus freshness while riper fruit keeps flashing up amidst that bracing, lively briskness. The body is slender, vivid and dry.  ANNE KREBIEHL MW, Wine Enthusiast

  4. Hiedler Kogelberg Riesling 2014
    Hiedler Kogelberg Riesling 2014

    Representing a mere 800 liters of the best material from a half-hectare of vines (which most years would join Hiedler’s “Maximum” bottling), this is scented with gentian, wisteria, peach kernel and rinds of tangerine and grapefruit; the latter anticipate the piquant edge to an invigoratingly zesty but otherwise silken palate. Thankfully, there is not only abundant fresh citrus and white peach juiciness to assuage any tendency toward bitterness, but also a remarkable saline-sweet savor of fresh scallop and browned butter that milked my salivary glands in a long, luscious finish. If this gains as much in the course of 2016 as it did between my tasting from tank in June and from bottle in September, it will turn out to be a rare treasure of its vintage.

  5. FX Pichler Riesling Steinertal Smaragd 2018
    FX Pichler Riesling Steinertal Smaragd 2018

    This single vineyard is located on the eastern end of Wachau, between the Loibenberg and Pfaffenberg sites. It is a small valley section composed of a deeply deposited, weathered gneiss soil. The resulting wine shows off aromas and flavours of vineyard peaches and impresses by its raciness and finesse. It is succulent and displays high drinkability, and is most distinctly characterised by the minerality of the primitive rock soil, which suggests a long future for this.

    The 2018 Ried Steinertal Riesling Smaragd is terribly coolish, precise and fresh on the clear and reductive nose, with white peach and raspberry aromas. From sandy, weathered bedrock soils, this is an elegant, lush and very precise and structured Riesling with stimulating phenolic grip and tension on the finish. This is an excellent Riesling from the Wachau. Tasted at the domain in September 2019. 93 points. Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate April 2020
