  7. Vorspannhof Mayr Gruner Veltliner Ried Loiser Weg Kremstal 2017
    $18.98
    Availability:In Stock
    We have espoused on our version of the theory of relativity on a number of occasions.  The heart of that theory is that one's perception of a wine is greatly influenced by what else might be on the table.  You are likely to have a better impression of a particular wine if it is tasted among lesser efforts, and, conversely, a really great wine's magnitude might not be fully appreciated if it is tasted solely amongst other great wines.
     
    Given that belief, it would follow that the Vorspannhof Mayr Gruner Veltliner Ried Loiser Weg Kremstal 2017, which we tasted after a knockout lineup of Ott Gruners, should have been swept away.  The fact that it held its own in that company speaks volumes.  From the northern end of Kremstal, near Kamptal, the soils here are loess and gravel, and the wine's style and expression is much more 'traditional' with in the realm of Gruners.
     
    Classic snap pea and watercress high tones with some white pepper and a little apricot, with a driving minerality and salinity through the middle to make everything sizzle, these folks are bringing it 'old school' in a good way.  It could hang with the flashier Otts because of its drive.  This one slices through food and leaves the palate energized for more, and the price performance in particular was impressive.

  9. Schloss Gobelsburg Gruner Veltliner Reid Renner 1 Kamptal 2016
    JS92
    WA91
    $39.98
    Availability:In Stock
    91-92 Points! Tasted as a sample in June 2017, the 2016 Ried Renner 1ÖTW (from the bottom of the Gaisberg) is beautifully aromatic and flinty on the pure, fresh and elegant nose that is still a bit reductive but very well defined. On the palate, this is a mouth-filling yet pure, fresh and finessed Grüner Veltliner with a stimulating mineral grip and an intense as well as lingering minerality. The vines are 20 to 60+ years old and root in crystalline soils such as gneiss and mica with amphibolite. The 2016 is a classic of great purity, tension, finesse and elegance. - Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate

    JS95
    WA92
    $49.98
    Availability:Out of Stock
    95 Points! A very sophisticated dry riesling with a ton of delicate spicy notes. This is just beginning to open up after 18 months maturation in barrel. The peach and herbal aromas are still restrained, but on the palate there's great textural complexity and the elegant finish is really long and subtle. Drink or hold. - James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

  12. Alzinger Gruner Veltliner Steinertal Smaragd 2015
    WA93
    $54.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93-94 Points! The 2015 Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Loibner Steinertal is from the first terraced vineyard of the Wachau (when you enter the valley from Krems) and its soils are very shallow. The complex and coolish, lovely precise nose displays smoky and stony aromas intertwined with ripe, white-fruit aromas and some legumes. Full-bodied, rich and intense on the palate this is a very elegant, salty and piquant Veltliner with a tension-filled, remarkably long finish. This is probably one of the outstanding Veltliners of the 2015 vintage in the Wachau. - Stephen Reinhardt, Wine Advocate #225
