More information on wine critics and ratings
This Grüner Veltliner is a blend of wines sourced from different terraced vineyards. The elevated terraces consist of stonier soils (schisted granite). The vines there show aromatic expression, good acidity, elegant stone fruit and lots of minerals. The lower sited terraces mostly of layered fertile loess show more body and ripeness. By combining those two characteristics we get a really classic Grüner Veltliner with both finesse and a certain vigor.

James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2019)
A tight, focused white with dried apple, honey and flint. Some stone, too. Full-bodied, creamy and minerally with dried mango and pear. So subtle and complex. From organically grown grapes.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 90 Points (2019)
Yeast and a subtle note of sage are timid on the nose. The light palate then adds green-pear freshness, while an edge of white pepper completes this picture of subtlety and freshness. This is brisk and crisp with a real refreshment factor.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 91 Points (2017)
Smoke aromas extend on the palate to join hints of toasted hazelnut, which surrounds yellow apple and quince flavors, all underscored by sea salt detail in this white. This shows great harmony overall, with good intensity of flavors and acidity, leaving a salty impression on the finish. Drink now through 2027.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 90 Points (2015)
Ripe pear and honeydew melon generously inform the nose as well as the ingratiatingly polished, caressing palate. Happily, crunchy evocations of cucumber and fresh green bean along with an abundance of green herbal and stony nuances guarantee a finish of invigoration as well as refreshment, while a sweet-saline savor reminiscent of raw scallop activates the salivary glands. (An amusing but annoying technicality that typifies the latest development in Austrian labeling: The expression 'Kamptaler Terrassen,' with which this bottling has long been labeled, was decreed an inadmissible geographical designation. But after Bründlmayer demonstrated that all of the vines supplying it are indeed on terraces, the authorities allowed that part to stand. (DS) (2/2017)

A rich and still juvenile bouquet of hay & honey blossoms, melon, yellow fruit with subtle exotic tones, as well as apple and citrus peel, followed by a whiff of peppery and toasty spice, at first fresh and dry but very sappy, with a creamy texture, almost rich, very complex and detailed, i.e. blossom honey, freshly cut citrus, apple and stone fruit, nicely contoured & firmly interwoven, with a long and spicy finish.

Citrus peel, white flowers, stone fruit and gooseberry dominate the graceful aromatic arc, delicate and bright fruit nuances on the palate, dry, fresh and pure with more yellow fruit and great acidity to match leading to a mineral and slightly spicy finish.

Delicate bouquet of pome and stone fruit enriched by flowery aspects (acacia) with a whiff of spice and yeast, dry, refreshing and stimulating, very sappy and well bodied with frequent joyful bursts of fruit flavor, perfectly balanced, as it also shows a strong backbone and good length.

Draws a broad arc that leads from hazel leaves over fully ripe apricot to bergamot orange. Crystal clear and multi-layered, very distinguished and with deep intensity that is still difficult to grasp. Chocolatey fullness and slowly fading oak tannins, but despite all its strength, finesse always sets the tone. A Grüner Veltliner that inspires dreams but shall require time.
