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.
