Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2012 Product #27146 (In Stock)
Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2012 Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2012

If you thought the Washington Post 3-Star 2011 Gmork was good...well, just try the 2012 and you'll be blown away! Once again, a terrific value in a single-vineyard Gruner made by one of Austria's top winemakers, Tony Bauer. Aromas of wet limestone, apple skin and white flowers emerge from the glass.  In the mouth, the wine bursts with gravelly apple and green peach fruit, loads of citrusy acidity and sweet white flowers.  A touch of white pepper emerges on the long, juicy, finish.  Just as fresh and mouthwateringly delicious as the 2011, but even richer, deeper, and more powerful. A great wine to enjoy on its own or with seafood, veal, or even roast pork.  Delicious and stunning value.

Strauss White 2012 Strauss White 2012

A fresh, zippy blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, and Chardonnay, think of the Strauss White as a more sophisticated answer to the no longer available Steininger Young.  Fresh, clean citrus flavors with a hint of honeysuckle, this is a delicious, refreshing wine for light fish dishes, sushi, and pre-dinner sipping.

Hillinger Secco NV Product #20714 (In Stock)
Hillinger Secco NV Hillinger Secco NV

Gently sparkling with fine fruit: that's the Hillinger Secco, the winery's light pink creation of 100% Pinot Noir grapes. This is easily the best (and most dry) release yet. Pretty in the glass and loaded with aromas and flavors of tangy strawberry, cranberry and cherry fruit.  Juicy and refreshingly dry on the tangy finish, this would be a great brunch or warm afternoon drink!

Tegernseerhof Gruner Veltliner T26 2012 Product #27022 (In Stock)
Tegernseerhof Gruner Veltliner T26 2012 Tegernseerhof Gruner Veltliner T26 2012

From the "Frauenweingarten" vineyard ("woman's vineyard") in Austria's Wachau region, comes this pure, satisfying, great quality Gruner Veltliner from Martin Mittelbach and local importer extraodinaire Klaus Wittauer. It's a really impressive value for a Gruner of this quality.

The aromas entice with green apple, apricot, and that hint of white pepper and soft herbs characteristic of Grüner Veltliner. On the palate the delicious, tart yet unctuous flavors of tropical fruit and Granny Smith apple are supported by a surprising amount of richness.

This single vineyard wine is designated Federspiel, which corresponds roughly to the Kabinett level of ripeness in the German quality designation system. However, instead of being made into an off-dry wine, this Grüner is vinified dry, so that extra ripeness translates into pleasing heft and mouth coating richness rather than sweetness. The clean, juicy finish with that signature whiff of pepper makes this incredibly versatile at the table. Our favorite matches, as disparate as they seem, are sushi, fried chicken, and charcuterie. Sounds odd, we know, but trust us!

Steininger Gruner Veltliner "Classic" Kamptal 2012 Product #27309 (In Stock)
Steininger Gruner Veltliner Steininger Gruner Veltliner

A long-time favorite has even more concentration, purity, and depth of fruit in the outstanding 2012 harvest.  Way under-priced! 

"Quite young and firm, though worth stocking up on now for later in the summer, when it should  be more relaxed. It shows the classic white-flower flavors of peach blossom and jasmine, with a hint of citrus and perfumed with talc. And at a modest 12.5 percent, the alcohol does not get in the way."  Washington Post ** ("Excellent")

Tegernseerhof Gruner Veltliner Bergdistel 375ml 2011 Product #27456 (In Stock)
Tegernseerhof Gruner Veltliner Bergdistel 375ml 2011 Tegernseerhof Gruner Veltliner Bergdistel 375ml 2011

Intense, delicious Gruner Veltliner from the lower terraces of Tegernseerhof's holdings in the Wachau.  Its Smaragd designation means the grapes got ripe enough for the equivalent of Spatlese in the German system, but this wine is vinified dry.  Aromas of stone fruit and herbs, and a steely, driving minerality on the palate.  Try it with sushi and Asian fusian cuisine - or grilled sausages!

Hillinger Pinot Gris 2012 Product #27590 (In Stock)
Hillinger Pinot Gris 2012 Hillinger Pinot Gris 2012

Our first thought when tasting this Pinot Gris was “wow!”  This intensely flavored white from Austria’s Burgenland, an area mostly known for reds, is no wussy, bland Pinot Grigio.  It’s hand-harvested and fermented in stainless steel tanks with a bit more skin contact than is usual for a white wine.  This allows the wine to pick up more color and flavor from the grapes’ grayish-pink skins.  The aromas are enormously appealing and perfect for fall – pear, nutmeg, ripe, golden apple, and a little hint of ginger.

About 5% of the wine is fermented in used barriques, rounding out the wine’s edges, and giving that sophisticated hint of spice to its flavor profile.  On the palate, those delicious spicy pear flavors carry through.  This wine packs a ton of richness and flavor into a very reasonable 12.5% ABV.  It finishes snappy and fresh, and that little bit of ginger kicks right back in.  This is the perfect cocktail party white to get everyone’s mouth watering, but its intensity and weight allows it to stand up to pretty robust food.

Steininger Gruner Veltliner Seckt 2011 Product #27835 (In Stock)

So, what happens when you take a great still wine – in this case, the 2011 Grüner Veltliner Kamptal– and give it a little fizz?  Pure joy ensues!

Steininger is Kamptal’s top producer of sparkling wines and one of the very best in all of Austria.  The family specializes in single varietal, single vintage, fizz that showcases the character of the grape and growing season.  The 2011 Grüner Veltliner Sekt is a beauty, at once creamy and full of classic Grüner fruit and terrifically dry and vibrant.  The in-bottle secondary fermentation delivers plenty of fizz, but this still reads “Grüner” with bright apple, green pea, and white pepper notes.  Easy to sip on its own and fun to pair with savory sausage or freshwater fish.

Steininger Gruner Veltliner Grand Gru 2012 Product #28056 (In Stock)
Steininger Gruner Veltliner Grand Gru 2012 Steininger Gruner Veltliner Grand Gru 2012

Karl and Eva Steininger make a range of delicious wines from Austria’s best white grape, and they intend the Grand Grü to be the top of their line.  The name is a fun play on words – evoking both the French concept of “Grand Cru” quality and the Steininger’s belief that this is a “Grand” Grüner Veltliner!  Fruit for this wine comes from the Steininger’s best vineyard and is harvested in very late September or October.  The ripe fruit ferments in stainless steel and then goes into large Acacia wood casks for malolactic fermentation and aging.

Pour a glass and you’ll meet generous aromas of creamy ripe pear, peach, and apricot.  Take a sip and you’ll find autumn fruits – golden pear and apple – plus lime zest and citrus with a dash of baking spice and hints of classing Grüner white pepper.  The texture is creamy and rich with plenty of acidity to keep things fresh and refreshing.  The finish is long, mouthwatering, and features a hint of lime, ginger and spice as it lingers.  Rich and round enough to handle the full range of Thanksgiving Dinner favorites and clean and juicy enough to keep you coming back for more.
