Prieler "Seeberg" Neusidlersee-Hugelland Pinot Blanc 2013

92 Wine Enthusiast
91+ Our Score
(11/2014) Brother and sister Georg and Silvia Prieler farm 20 hectares of white and red grapes in the Burgenland region of Austria, roughly 30 miles south of Vienna. At a recent tasting, Georg poured us this 2013 Pinot Blanc from the limestone rich Seeberg vineyard. We instantly smiled, as we had tasted an earlier vintage of this wine with Georg three years ago, while actually standing in the Seeberg vineyard. Yes, our jobs are difficult. ;) This 2013 bottling is delicious, with a medium-full bodied texture and weight to balance its zesty finish. The flavors are subtle, with fresh red and yellow pear, macadamia, lavender honey and river stone mineral notes gliding across the palate, giving pleasure and complexity. Precise, but fleshy and dense. The Austrians have a way with Pinot Blanc that makes us want to drink it all the time.

Heidi Schrock Neusiedlersee-Hugelland Gelber Muskateller 2013

92 Our Score
(11/2014) Heidi Schrock took over her family's winery in 1983. Located in the historic village of Rust, along the shores of the famous Lake Neusidlersee (across the lake from Hungary), Heidi and her neighbors are best known for a dessert style wine that compares to the famed Tokaji of Hungary. This aromatic bottling, however, is completely dry. It is one of those wines that totally blows people away. It just grabs you, especially if you're serving it with a spicy, savory dish like pozole or curry. Perfumed and floral, it gives notes of five spice, rose, jasmine, ginger, wild cherry, nectarine and lychee. It is long and complex and, if given another 1-2 years in bottle, will round out and develop even more. Bring to your friends' house for dinner, but make sure they open it while you're there!

Heinrich Burgenland Red 2013

90 Our Score
(7/2016) Drive two hours due south from Vienna and you'll find yourself in Burgenland, the Austrian wine region known for dessert wines and distinctive reds such as this bottling from Heinrich. A blend of 50% Zweigelt, 40% Blaufrankish and 10% Saint Laurent, this earthy, peppery, red fruited wine tastes like a good Côtes-du-Rhône with quite a pleasant Austrian character. Enjoy this delightful red by itself, with a slight chill, or try with roast chicken or even schnitzel!

Meinklang Burgenland White 2013

89 Our Score
(4/2015) An enticing blend of 50% Gruner Veltliner, 40% Riesling and 10% Muskat. These grapes work very well together, providing lemon, lime, peach and apple in the nose and on the palate. On the drier side of off-dry, this delicious blend finishes with a spicy, peach flavor.
