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.

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 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.

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.
