Anton Bauer Rose Feuersbrunn 2016 Product #32331 (In Stock)
Anton Bauer Rose Feuersbrunn 2016 Anton Bauer Rose Feuersbrunn 2016

Two-time Austrian “Winemaker of the Year” Anton Bauer's Rosé Feuersbrunn (named for the Wagram town where it’s grown) has always been tasty but the 2016 edition reaches some very high heights indeed.  It looks even better with the pink label you’ll find here (vs. the black text on other export bottles), so we bought enough to get some labeled just for you and to bring the price down to rock-bottom levels, too!

Rosé Feuersbrunn 2016 starts with one of Austria’s own red grapes – Zweigelt – for bright fruit and then adds Austrian up-and-commers Merlot and Syrah for depth and complexity.  It’s a pretty, assertive, pink in the glass with bold aromas of ripe watermelon, fresh strawberry, summer flowers and just picked herb.  On the palate it’s broad and full of watermelon, strawberry and redcurrant fruit with lively accents of tangerine oil and lemon zest.  The flavors really fill your mouth with satisfaction before a lip-smacking, crisp, finish of cranberry, watermelon and herb pops and lingers on.  Definitely a delight right now, but hold onto a few bottles – it will be better still at Thanksgiving and next spring!

Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2016 Product #32170 (In Stock)
Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2016 Anton Bauer Gruner Veltliner Gmork 2016

Hands down, 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. 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 and great value.

Best vintage yet for this intensely flavored, rich and zesty, take on Pinot Gris. It's jam-packed with aromas and flavors of spiced pear, golden apple, and ginger and wonderfully rich at just 12.5% alcohol.  The spice and ginger notes flow through to the long and mouthwatering finish.  Fresh and flavorful enough to sip on a warm evening, but built to shine at table all year long!

Hillinger Small Hill Red 2015 Hillinger Small Hill Red 2015

The kind of soft, supple, and oh-so-easy-to-drink red you'll want to have at hand all summer long!  A blend of 50% Merlot plus equal parts Pinot Noir and St. Laurent, this is bursting with aromas of dark cherry, black raspberry, and a dusty chocolate note.  In the mouth, the fruit gets a little tangier with boysenberry and cherry notes plus more bitter chocolate and just the right touch of oak spice.  Great energy and focus from start to finish with tangy blueberry and chocolate notes lingering.  Fun to just sip and a great match for grilled sausage, roast chicken, or burgers.

Anton Bauer Pinot Noir Wagram 2015 Product #31942 (In Stock)
Anton Bauer Pinot Noir Wagram 2015 Anton Bauer Pinot Noir Wagram 2015

This is 100% Pinot Noir grown on chalky loess soils warmed by hot winds blowing west from the Pannonian plain and cooled by chilly eastern nighttime breezes from the Alps.  Picked perfectly ripe at a very reasonable 13% alcohol, Tony gently extracts color and flavor during a slow fermentation and then softens and spices the wine with 16 months aging in used oak cask and barrique.

In 2015, Tony’s “basic” Pinot Noir manages something that Pinot does better than any other grape – to marry deep, rich, lush fruit with a silky texture and lovely vibrancy.  It serves up big aromas of spiced raspberry and black cherry with a lovely earthy bass note.  In the mouth it’s not at all heavy or thick, but loaded with intense flavors of crushed raspberry and cherry, Asian spice, smoke, and a hint of herb.  Silky smooth in texture, a just right burst of fresh raspberry acids give lift on the long, lightly tannic, finish.  A Pinot for fans of the best of Oregon, the Sonoma Coast, and Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune. Probably the finest Pinot Noir value in the store...Ever.  Astonishing.

Tegernseerhof Gruner Veltliner T26 Federspiel 2016 Product #32092 (In Stock)
Tegernseerhof Gruner Veltliner T26 Federspiel 2016 Tegernseerhof Gruner Veltliner T26 Federspiel 2016

Wow - just plain wow.  If you want to know why 2016 could be one of the greatest vintages ever for Austria's Grüner Veltliner, just try this.  As Jancis Robinson explains, “The finest Grüner Veltliners in the world come from seriously distinguished sites, with the greatest concentration of them being west of Vienna on the Wachau's famous south-facing terraces on the bank of the Danube” – exactly where perfectionist Martin Mittlebach farms his vineyards and makes Tegernseerhof wines. Wachau Grüner has the potential to deliver more volume, richness and intensity than wines from nearby Kamptal, and that’s certainly what you found here in 2015 and will again this year. This is the kind of wine that goes for $30-$50 at other, more promotionally-oriented, estates.  At half that price, it’s pretty compelling stuff.

"Clean and fresh, the palate does not yet show much fruit. This seems stony and tight, with occasional glimpses of spice. The wine needs some air to open up but presents taut, clean refreshment."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Josef Bauer Gruner Veltliner Katharina 2016 Product #32214 (In Stock)
Josef Bauer Gruner Veltliner Katharina 2016 Josef Bauer Gruner Veltliner Katharina 2016

Joe crafts this cuvee, named for his daughter, from vines growing on pure, calcium and clay-rich, loess soils on different parts of the hill.  He picks some of these sites early to maximize crispness and green, tangy, fruit notes.  Others are harvested late for maximum ripeness, more exotic fruit, and density on the palate.  A complex formula leads to a complex wine, layered with notes of pineapple, Clementine, apricot, Golden Delicious, green herb and dusty white pepper.  The texture is rich and luxurious, sitting on your lounge with good weight balanced by dusty, crushed stone, minerality.  The finish is simply endless, coating your palate and leaving pops of fruit, mineral, pepper and more to savor on and on.  A great seafood sausage would be great here, although most anything fried or with a bit of cream sauce would satisfy.

“Friendly, lemony freshness plays on the nose and palate, where it's joined by spicy grapefruit peel notes. That zestiness pervades the taut, straight-lined and utterly refreshing palate. This is concentrated, clean and full of citrusy verve.”Wine Enthusiast 92 points

Steininger Gruner Veltliner Grand Gru 2016 Product #32694 (In Stock)
Steininger Gruner Veltliner Grand Gru 2016 Steininger Gruner Veltliner Grand Gru 2016

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.  Fallstafff 92-94 points

Steininger Gruner Veltliner Kittmannsberg Reserve 2015 Steininger Gruner Veltliner Kittmannsberg Reserve 2015

The 2015 vintage adds even more richness and intensity than usual to this very deeply texture Reserve-level Gruner. The finish is very long and rich (but bone dry) with an almost brothy savory element.

"The nose does not want to give a lot away. The palate, however, shows spicy hints of nettle and a fresh bouncy zesty backbone of lemon and grapefruit, which makes it all the more appetizing."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Steininger Gruner Veltliner Sekt 2014 Product #31232 (In Stock)
Steininger Gruner Veltliner Sekt 2014 Steininger Gruner Veltliner Sekt 2014

So, what happens when you take a great still wine – in this case, the 2014 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 2013 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.

"Green pear and moss play on the nose. The palate underlines these varietal Grüner notes with the creamy, biscuity notes of autolysis and very appetizing lemon freshness which makes this dry, slender and creamy wine utterly refreshing. This seems lighter than it is but delivers lots of flavor."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Tegernseerhof Riesling Steiner Pfaffenberg 2016 Product #32285 (In Stock)

Last vintage of this bone dry, very stylish, Riesling earned 94 points from Wine Enthusiast - this is better.  Big aromas and flavors of ripe yellow peach drenched in fresh lime juice with dry, dusty, slate minerality and a hint of fresh fruit blossoms.  Palate-coating and intense through the mid-palate and then stony, zesty, and very long through the mouthwatering finish. Should cost 2x this amount.

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.

Hirsch Gruner Veltliner Renner 2013 Product #30840 (In Stock)
Hirsch Gruner Veltliner Renner 2013 Hirsch Gruner Veltliner Renner 2013

A stylish, pure, Gruner of fine sophistication.

"With a diversity of mineral nuances more familiar from Riesling, this Grüner Veltliner projects an infectiously juicy and crunchily invigorating alliance of fresh lime, orange, pea tendrils, corn shoots and ginseng, with beet root earthiness joining wet stone on the bass line. A penetrating, almost severely but downright mouth-shakingly intense finish perpetuates the full range of diversity displayed on the firm palate, accompanied by hints of iodine, black tea smokiness plus saliva-inducing salinity and animality akin to oyster liquor. This weighs in at just 12.7% alcohol, permitting a lovely sense of levity to boot."  Vinous (Schildknecht) 93 points

"The citrus colored 2013 Grüner Veltliner Renner Erste Lage comes from a vineyard that is situated below and to the west of the Kammerner Gaisberg. The soil is a calcareous sandy silt that has formed from the underlying loess, alluvial deposits, and fragments of crystalline rocks such as gneiss, amphibolite and mica schist what could eventually explain the lovely mix of fruit and salinity in this wine. Its precise and fully ripe fruit flavors are highlighted by piquant earthy/mineral flavors that underline the freshness of this piquant, medium-bodied and elegant, well balanced Veltliner. The lovely blend of ripe fruits and salty minerals leads to a delicate finish which makes this an extremely animating wine."Wine Advocate 92 points

Rudi Pichler Gruner Veltliner Smaragd Kollmutz 2013 Product #30809 (In Stock)

A fabulous, richly textured, top-shelf Gruner!

"The 40-year-old vines in these loess-dominated terraces manage a wine that as usual largely buffers its alcoholic fullness while projecting a fine sense of primary apple, lime and grapefruit juiciness. A heady, slightly decadent honeysuckle and peony perfume billows from the glass and across the palate. Caressingly satin-textured, this nevertheless delivers an almost chili-like peppery finishing bite, a tart jab of rhubarb, and faint alcoholic heat, albeit amid thankfully persistent juiciness. The mid-palate, in short, is mannerly, while the finish, like that of a number of Pichler 2013s, is downright ferocious." Vinous (Schildknecht) 91 points
