THE WINE ADVOCATE - 92 POINTS

The 2013 Gruner Veltliner Smaragd Loibner Steinertal offers white fruit flavors and an intense, concentrated nose. Read More...
The wine is a rich and full-bodied, fresh and well-balanced Grüner which combines juiciness with minerality, but remains – at least today – a quite technical wine.

Leo Alzinger is one of the leading estates in the Wachau. The wines are highly rated in Austrian/German wine reviews and David Schildknecht scored the 2012 Riesling Smaragd Steinertal 96 points in issue 212 (and also 96 points for the 2007 vintage in issue 181) and the 2012, as well as the 2007 Riesling Loibenberg Smaragd, 95 points. The clear, cool and minerally-piquant Steinertal Riesling is also my favorite from the 2013s, however, Alzinger's wines did not fascinate me as much as my forerunner and as many other Smaragd wines I tasted in February at the Domäne Wachau in Dürnstein. There is not much to criticize here: the wines are extremely well made, clear, profound, dense, piquant and expressive. But there is something that stops them from really hitting hit my heart. It's not that I dislike them, but I'm not in love with them. If I had to name a certain feature that makes an Alzinger Smaragd an Alzinger Smaragd I don't know what to say, except the very well-made style, and a clear expression of terroir. Possibly, I wish there was a little more of Leo Alzinger's intuition and less perfection?

Zweigelt (pronounced "tsv eye gelt"), a crossing of Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent, was developed in 1922, at the Federal Institute for Viticulture and Pomology at Klosterneuburg, Austria, Read More...
by Dr. Friedrich "Fritz" Zweigelt. It is now the most widely-grown red grape variety in Austria. Berger's Zweigelt is fresh and unoaked, medium-bodied, and moderate in alcohol. This is a lovely, soft, aromatic red reminiscent of pinot noir in its cherry/raspberry scent and taste. There are subtle herbal notes on the clean finish. Serve this wine slightly cool with anything from a roast pork loin to a grilled cheeseburger. This wine comes in a liter bottle sealed with a crown cap. (Put a bottle stopper or an old cork in the bottle if you don't finish it right away.)

*** "Best White Wine for Under $10" ***

This light, refreshing white makes an excellent introduction to Gruner Veltliner. An excellent value that's an easy pairing for a wide array of foods, Berger Gruner Veltliner has a pleasant acidity, a delicious palate of citrus and stone fruits, and a hint of minerality.

of the corresponding Federspiel. Smoky hints of tobacco join dark leafy greens, while hints of lemon rind and fruit pit serve for persistent, piquant invigoration in a sustained finish. Look to serve this through at least 2018."

STEPHEN TANZER'S INTERNATIONAL 90 POINTS - " A ripe papaya aroma is delicately laced by orange zest, verbena and dill. Despite the wine's opulence and concentration, there's also a very firm structure here due to well-integrated spine of acidity and a graceful mineral underpinning. Wet slate, pepper, melon and salty minerals linger on the long, slightly sweet finish."

gravel soils of the Kremstal region of Austria. This lively, food-friendly wine "sings" on the palate.

From the winery: "A very attractive fruit bouquet yields apple, peach and citrus aromas along with a typical Veltliner spiciness and a touch of white pepper. The soft and juicy palate is supported by fine acidity."

WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS - "Despite early-harvest, the Nikolaihof 2010 Gruner Veltliner Hefeabzug weighs-in at, for this bottling, relatively robust over-12% alcohol, Read More...
which is all the more surprising considering that this wine has seldom exhibited a more delightful sense of levity. There is almost a sweet sense to the crisp green bean, apple, and pear succulently displayed on a lushly-textured, lees-enriched palate. A refreshing thread of lemon juice and a sense of crushed stone suffusion speak to the brightness and mineral density characteristic for this vintage at its best, while a bittersweet, Pinot Blanc-like suggestion of corn shoots adds to the stimulation of a long finish. This should prove delightfully versatile for at least the better part of half a dozen years."

Always an affordable treat from an historic estate, this basic Grüner aged on the lees is simply transcendent in 2013. Heady, soft, fresh aromas of mountain meadow and autumn leaves. The lees add some body to crisp but moderate acid, reminiscent of ripe apples. Strikingly pure, ethereal.

Schloss Gobelsburg has a winemaking history dating back to the 12 century. Today it is a joint project of Michi Moosbrugger and Willi Brundlmayer. They are succeeding in making beautiful, balanced wines which reflect their terroir. Importer Terry Theise describes the flavors of the single vineyard 2013 Steinsetz as "exotic, something between verbena and spearmint and quince. A pointed thrust followed by a big juicy robe of fruit, that billows in a foamy wave as it picks up oxygen, getting all barleyed and stock-y, and then suddenly minty and green again; ripe and grainy and vibrating with energy."

Thermenregion south of Vienna...". Johann is the seventh generation Stadlmann growing grapes and making wine here. The estate has been certified organic according to the Austrian Organic Programme since 2007. The 2006 Saint Laurent displays a deep ruby colour. On the nose you find aromas of blackberry, sour cherry and black elder. There are fruity flavours on the palate and a delicate texture with soft tannins on the finish. The wine is vinified in big, old wooden barrels for added complexity.

This is a charming, light-weight red tasting of bright cherry fruit. There is no oak treatment on this wine, so it is fresh and pure. Delightful!
