Paul D Gruner Veltliner 2015 1.0l Paul D Gruner Veltliner 2015 1.0l

Best vintage ever here. Refreshing aromas of green apple, fresh peach, and orange-tinged citrus.  You’ll love how the ripe apple, pear, and pineapple fruit gets lifted across your palate by a faint accent of spicy ginger.  Your mouth will water as the clean, fresh, stone and orchard fruit flavors just get fresher from lingering notes of lemon and lime. A great poolside and party value!

Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2015 Product #31235 (In Stock)
Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2015 Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2015

As the Post says, Austria's 2015s “are among the best white wines in the world in terms of value and quality, and they’re enjoying the best vintage in recent memory.”   Certainly, this is the best vintage of this stunning value single-vineyard Gruner to date!  There’s a refreshing salty brininess to the aromas here, along with fresh pear and meyer lemon. On the palate there’s a pleasing weightiness from that extra notch of ripeness 2015’s near perfect conditions brought that you wouldn’t expect from all those brisk, fresh aromas. That pear aroma takes on a lovely ripeness, and there’s a delicious ripe apple flavor as well, like biting into a fresh Honeycrisp. A refreshing, versatile white.

“Notes of crisp green pear and crunchy red apple are very appetizing, the palate is fresh and echoes these flavors and edges them with some spice and alcoholic heat, but also has a drive and energy of its own. Friendly and very moreish.”Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Just another great vintage for this fresh and snappy Gruner, this time with an extra gear of depth from the outstanding 2015 vintage.

"Totally zesty swirls of ripe citrus sweep up green pear and yeast notes as they rise from the glass and flow across the palate. This has verve and liveliness and acts like a tonic: it's light-bodied, balanced, scented refreshment."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Tegernseerhof Gruner Veltliner Bergdistel Smaragd 2015 Product #31320 (In Stock)
Tegernseerhof Gruner Veltliner Bergdistel Smaragd 2015 Tegernseerhof Gruner Veltliner Bergdistel Smaragd 2015

A blend of from magnificent Wachau sites, some at nose-bleed altitudes for sizzling energy and minerality, other from lower sites for ripe tropical fruit and palate-coating richness. Give it a swirl and you’ll be greeted with generous aromas of dusty pear, green pineapple, fresh lemon, salty stone and subtle white pepper.  Take a sip and you’ll immediately notice the fabulous texture – mouth-coating, dense, and creamy with an almost buttery richness.  The wine explodes with deep flavors of tangy pineapple, just squeezed lemon juice, spiced pear, fresh sweet pea and more white pepper notes that linger on and on.

The 2015 Bergidstel earned a fine 92 point rating from Falstaff, Austria’s premier wine publication.  Their review is spot on:  "Medium yellow-green, silver reflexes. Fine herb wort, fresh yellow fruit, delicate orange. Juicy, delicate fruit juices, taut, elegant and full-bodied, fresh acid curve, already well developed, a versatile food companion."  Falstaff 92 points

Steininger Gruner Veltliner Grand Gru 2015 Product #31470 (In Stock)
Steininger Gruner Veltliner Grand Gru 2015 Steininger Gruner Veltliner Grand Gru 2015

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, after all of their and neighbors other grapes intended for dry wines are long picked and crushed.  The perfectly ripe fruit ferments in stainless steel and then goes into large Acacia wood casks for malolactic fermentation and aging. 

The 2015 is simply the best, richest, most vibrant, release here yet.  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.

Steininger Gruner Veltliner Kittmannsberg Reserve 2014 Steininger Gruner Veltliner Kittmannsberg Reserve 2014

Is anyone in Austria making better Grüner Veltliner than Karl and Brigitta Steininger right now?  I don’t know for sure, but I guarantee that no one is making better Grüner for the money than these rising Kamptal superstars and, for my money, this is the best wine they make.

It serves up wild aromatics of white and stone fruit, exotic spice, white pepper and a hint of caramel.  All those notes and more pour out across your palate in a rich wine with fine density and amazing cut, vibrancy, and drive.  The finish is wonderfully long, leaving mouthwatering fresh fruits, white pepper, and a touch of lemon zest lingering. A brilliant follow-up to the 92 point 2013!

Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Eiswein 2013 375ml Product #31238 (In Stock)
Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Eiswein 2013 375ml Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Eiswein 2013 375ml

One bitterly cold morning in January 2014, Anton Bauer and his team got up before dawn and harvested the last Grüner Veltliner berries of the 2013 growing season.  The frozen berries were rushed to the winery and immediately pressed, releasing tiny amounts of super-sugar-laden juicy and leaving the still solid water behind.  The thick, viscous, juice went into tank where it slowly fermented until the yeast could do no more, bringing the wine to 12.5% alcohol and leaving a stunning amount of rich sweetness and bracing acidity behind.

Despite the 2014 harvest date, this is technically a 2013 vintage wine.  But whatever you call it, the wine is brilliant.  Rich and creamy with layers of apricot, peach and white fruit aromas and flavors, there's a touch of honey and caramel for depth and bracing, tangy, acidity for freshness.  Sits on your palate for minutes after each sip, this is a rare treat you won't want to miss.
