Alzinger Gruner Veltliner Steinertal Smaragd 2015
WA
93
Availability: Low Availability
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, ri ...read more

VM
97
Availability: Low Availability
97 Points!  Succulent white peach and Persian melon are tinged more subtly than usual for this bottling with Madagascar and Szechuan peppercorns, black tea and crushed stone. There is hauntingly bittersweet floral perfume wafting through this entire performance, almost as though some Achleiten or Heiligenstein got loose in the fermenter.  ...read more

Availability: Low Availability
91 Points!  Subtle lentil and delicately herbal shadings to fresh apple are featured on a glossy and caressing yet buoyant and refreshing palate. Faintly peaty, stony and alkaline notes add intrigue and hints of fresh red raspberry contribute seed-crunching vigor to the superbly sustained finish. Here is one of those not infrequent 2013 i ...read more

Jamek Gruner Veltliner Ried Achleiten Federspiel 2014
WA
90
Availability: Low Availability
Jamek's 2014 Grüner Veltliner Federspiel Achleiten starts invitingly clear, fresh and fragrant on the intense but also "light" nose, mixing vegetal and fruity aromas with spicy mineral notes. The attack on the mouth is enervating and vibrant and the intense taste is not connected to alcohol, but a high extract, which makes t ...read more

90 Points! The 2015 Riesling Federspiel Ried Klaus offers a precise bouquet of white fruits intertwined with herbal and flinty stone aromas. Round and intense on the palate, with beautiful concentration and a persistent, lovely salty finish, this is a highly elegant and complex, tightly structured Riesling from one of the most spectacular sing ...read more

Johann Donabaum Gruner Veltliner Spitzer Point Federspiel 2015
Availability: In Stock
Johann Donabaum's Austrian wines were an immediate favorite when we started working with them about a decade ago but there have been gaps in having Donabaum on the shelf for reasons that we mentioned previously.  We liked his stuff for a couple of reasons.  Clearly the guy had good vineyards, and clearly a unique touch where his Gruners and Rieslings were very typical of the personality one expected from vineyards like Spitzer Point and Setzberg in the Wachau.  These wines had all the terroir and minerality one could expect, but still a certain accessibili ...read more

Nikolaihof Gruner Veltliner Hefeabzug 2015
VM
92
Availability: In Stock
92 Points! Bottled off its lees, as its nickname implies, this now has tough competition from a second cask of the same base wine that was bottled unfiltered under the nickname “Zwickl.” (See my accompanying review of that bottling.) But this Hefeabzug is quite distinctively delicious. Chamomile, hay, artichoke, lima bean, cucumber ...read more

Nikolaihof Gruner Veltliner Im Weingebirge Federspiel 2015
VM
92
Availability: Sold Out
92 Points! At barely over 12 percent alcohol, no wonder this is nearly as buoyant as its Hefeabzug counterpart, or as the 2014 Im Weingebirge (which was marginally higher in alcohol). Along with its lift, this displays clarity and infectious juiciness, offering both riper pear and apple fruit than the corresponding Hefeabzug plus similarly inv ...read more

Nikolaihof Riesling Steiner Hund 2012
VM
95
Availability: In Stock
95 Points! Prominent lemony brightness and underlying alkalinity do not convey an immediate impression of such a ripe, sunny vintage as this was. Aromatically alluring sea breeze, fennel pollen, and green and black tea persist in the mouth, where this wine also grabs hold of the palate and salivary glands in an outpouring of lemon-drenched oys ...read more

VM
96
Availability: In Stock
96 Points! The third such Riesling Vom Stein of Federspiel weight to be given an élevage formerly reserved for Smaragd-weight “Vinothek” offerings, this was only bottled in April 2015. There are refinements and complexities of aromatics, flavor and texture here that go far beyond those found today in the lovely “regula ...read more

92 Points!  The 2013 Riesling Federspiel Vom Stein offers a clear, ripe and well-concentrated bouquet of white stone-fruit aromas along with some nice terroir notes of herbs and stones. Medium-bodied, fresh and elegant on the palate, this Riesling is full of energy, mineral tension and vibrancy and demonstrates impressively, like great Mo ...read more

Wachau Riesling Terrassen Federspiel 2015
Availability: Low Availability
Juicy fresh apricot and lime are laced with iodine and salt in this sassy and invigorating if spare bottling. The significant share of fruit from Right Bank sites and from the Spitzer Graben, which is characteristic of the Domäne Wachau’s generic bottlings (fruit from the Wachau’s core Left Bank being to a significant degree diverted into single-vineyard offerings), makes for a wine whose leanness, levity and brightness are atypical for 2015. A penetrating, refreshing finish nicely perpetuates the mineral elements that were already evident midpalate. - David ...read more
