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.  But 2016’s slightly milder temperatures (and small, hail-diminished, crop) adds supreme freshness and zest to the aromas and flavors of ripe stone fruit (peach, apricot), Granny Smith apple, and tangy, under-ripe, pineapple.  And, always in Martin’s wines, there’s a deep sense of the Wachau’s distinctive salty minerality and warming, almost peppery, spice in every sip.  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.
