OTT 2012 AM BERG GRUNER VELTLINER NIEDEROSTERREICH

WINE ADVOCATE 91 POINTS"The Ott 2012 Gruner Veltliner Am Berg – still rendered largely from contract fruit, but from vineyards where he calls the shots and his crew harvests – smells cool and refreshingly of mint and other high-toned herbal essences along with hints of lentil, whose herbal, nutty piquancy comes out more prominently on a soothing, buoyant and consummately refreshing palate. Juicy grapefruit and cucumber are mingled with stony and saline nuances for compulsively saliva-inducing and next-sip-taking finish. Plan to enjoy this pure, refined, extraordinary value through at least 2017.
Bernhard Ott continues to expand the acreage under his control and to fine-tune both his cellar and his somewhat renegade (i.e. not strictly by Steiner’s book) biodynamic viticulture regimen. (Some of the relevant developments are canvassed in my issue 197 report.) To my palate, the outstanding wines of this estate indeed keep getting better, and the whole 2012 range of Gruner Veltliner – which makes up virtually Ott’s entire production – is impressive. “We got a few showers at crucial periods to alleviate the drought,” he explains, “and the May frost didn’t affect any of our top vineyards, though it trimmed our crop overall because on the flat lands the vineyards were kaput.”
