- Steininger Gruner Veltliner Steven Holl Loisium 2012 Product #29537 (In Stock)
The interesting label design for this wine comes from NY architecht Stephen Holl's inception of the Loisium cellars located in the Austrian town of Langelois. The area is an inviting introduction into the winemaking process of the Kamptal region, which Steininger has been heavily involved with.
This Gruner Veltliner delivers a powerful aromas of peach flowers, white pepper, and orange zest. The Loisium is a bit of a richer style Gruner, but still maintains crisp acidity. Flavors of pretty meyer lemon, yellow apple and tart pineapple fill the palate. A long finish keeps you wanting to drink more. A great wine to have with sushi.
"The Loisium is the wine museum in Langenlois in which the Steininger family is partner. This wines comes from the vineyard next to the museum. It’s brightly fruity, a delicately layered wine, full of citrus and apricot fruit flavors, lively and ready to drink. Screwcap."Wine Enthusiast 88 points
- Steininger Gruner Veltliner Seckt 2012 Product #28639 (In Stock)
So, what happens when you take a great still wine – in this case, the 2012 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 2012 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.
"Zesty, superfresh citrus and apple notes set the tone of this light-footed, slender fizz that is dry, vivacious and refreshing, with just a little yeastiness. Its a classy little apéritif whose lightness of touch will make every conversation sparkling."Wine Enthusiast 89 points
