(5/2015) "The remarkably powerful nose takes time to open up, hinting at yellow flowers, fern fronds, beeswax and citrus. The palate is immensely concentrated but not heavy, with a sleek density and a feeling that this has barely begun to breathe. Hang on to this; soft sprays of pepper hint at the pleasure to come. Drink as of 2017."

Franz Hirtzberger Smaragd Weissburgunder 2012

Only 25 cases of this gem were imported into the US, to call it limited availability is an absolute understatement!

(8/2016) We first tasted this 2012 Weissburgunder last year at Peter Weygandt's annual tasting in New York and it blew us away. The silky, velvety, incredibly dense texture and mouthfeel alone are worth the price of admission. Ripe pear, peach, apricot, honeycomb, savory green earth, button mushroom and rocky minerality are just a few of the seductive flavors to indulge in. The complexity of flavor and richness of fruit are at a level simply not found except in the world's most exclusive wines. Like Hirtzberger's other bottlings, this Weissburgunder will develop even more complexity in years to come. Several days after opening, our sample showed no sign of slowing down, evidence of its quality and ageability.

Emmerich Knoll Ried Loibenberg Federspiel Riesling 2015

90 Wine Advocate
(6/2016) "From higher plots in the south-facing Loibenberg, the 2015 Loibner Riesling Ried Loibenberg Federspiel displays an elegant and intense, minerally flavored bouquet with ripe-apple aromas intertwined with pure flavors of crushed stones. Lean, fresh and piquant, this is an elegant and very mineral Riesling with a stimulating purity and salinity in the finish. Lovely, fresh, full of tension and provided with a very good length. Drink: 2018 - 2026."

(11/2015) "Schooled in Austria, Wess cut his teeth at assorted properties in Bordeaux before returning to his homeland and establishing his eponymous operation in 2003. This is aromatic, graceful and vivid Grüner showing lovely tension, dried herbs and an abundance of citrus fruit."
