Hiedler Kitmannsberg November Gruner Veltliner 2010

91-92+ Wine Advocate
93 Our Score
A cellar selection, this powerful white will age effortlessly for the next 15+ years, becoming more and more complex as time progresses. The Wine Advocate rated this 91-92+ from the barrel. From the bottle it is even more impressive. Importer Terry Theise opines that... "The wine is a pagan orgy they held in the Parthenon while the Gods were sleeping. As my Boston chums would say, it's off the ga-hinges." Not a traditional wine review, but his point comes through loud and clear! Allow this at least a few years in the cellar and then hold on tight!

(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."

Prieler "Leithaberg" Neusidlersee-Hugelland Pinot Blanc 2012

(5/1/2014) "Appetizing, flinty notes of woodsmoke mingle with green pear and unite into wonderful concentration on the linear palate. A rounded but toned wine, with some muscle and an almost phenolic grip, this calls out for food and will be a worthy accompaniment for white meats. Wonderful apple-dominated and prolonged finish."

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.

Wachter-Wiesler "Ried Reserve" Burgenland Blaufrankisch 2012

95 James Suckling
(12/2016) "A great Eisenberg blaufränkisch that's just beginning to give its best. The uplifting nose of laurel and bay leaves as well as elderberries leads to a sleek but very concentrated palate, in which the fresh acidity and moderately dry tannins are beautifully integrated. Achieves lift-off just as the long, brilliant finish enters the picture."

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."

Prieler "Seeberg" Neusidlersee-Hugelland Pinot Blanc 2013

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.

Claus Preisinger "Kalkstein" Burgenland Blaufrankisch 2014

89+ Our Score
90 Wine & Spirits
(4/2017) "Preisinger selects the grapes for this wine from parcels rich in limestone (kalkstein), then ferments the fruit with ambient yeasts in stainless steel tanks and ages it ten months in barrels. The result is a pretty blaufränkisch, delicate in its cedar spice and juicy black fruit. It ends clean, the acidity palate whetting."

(9/2016) "Pure notes of red fruits reach the nose: Morello cherry and mulberry harmonize beautifully. Their purity pervades a palate that has the lightest touch: there is something authentic, beautiful and unforced about this. There is a suggestion, too, of herb, moss or undergrowth. This unpretentious winemaking style lets this pure, glorious fruit speak for itself and brings with it a profound sense of honest depth, bountiful earth and full-fruited balance."

(8/1/2014) "Fresh pear peel and citrus shimmer on the nose. The palate delivers zesty freshness, gentle texture with a little spritz and enticing arugula and white pepper spice in a rounded body."
