2015 Schloss Gobelsburg "Gobelsburger" Grüner Veltliner Kamptal

90 points Vinous: "Really ripe flavors of apple and honeydew melon, combined with modest acidity, make for a net impression of subtle but attractive sweetness. The feel is lush for an entry-level bottling, but there is still a sense of buoyancy along with ample refreshing primary juiciness. A nutty-rich suggestion of lentil adds midpalate depth. And, as so often from this particular Gobelsburg bottling (labeled until recently as "Gobelsburger"), a mouthwatering and intriguing mineral dimension emerges in the finish, here evoking crab meat and shell reduction in its combina ...Read More »

It offers less nuance or mouthwatering savor than did its amazing 2013 counterpart, but grasses, green herbs, lime and freshly milled grain all contribute subtle complexity, and the finish manages to be at once soothing and stimulating.

There’s more force, grip and depth here than in the corresponding generic bottling, if neither more charm nor perhaps more complexity – just another wonderful example of skilled hands and vintage virtues!

Ilse and Josef Maier organically farm about 20 hectares of Grüner Veltliner and Riesling in Austria's Kremstal region. Planted to the deep loess soils of the Rosensteig Vineyard on the slopes of the Danube, this wine is a mouthwatering, complex version of what Grüner Veltliner can achieve in the right hands and terroir. Floral, with stone fruit fleshiness and a refreshing mint component, the 2013 Geyerhof Rosensteig is equally at home with spicy Asian fare, smoked fish or a fancy sausage with plenty of sauerkraut and spicy mustard.

Vinous: "From diverse sources in Krems-Stein, this delivers classic Grüner Veltliner virtues, which is more than can be said about quite a few generic bottlings of the vintage. There is a nod in the direction of vintage-typical ripe honeydew and muskmelons, on both the nose and the buoyant palate (as in 2014, at 11.5 percent alcohol), but fresh lime and green bean lead to a brightly juicy, lightly crunchy finish.

Citrus, mineral and floral notes abound in a distinctly savory Grüner that needs time to unwind from its recent bottling. My sense is that the Meeresboden is holding back quite a bit of its potential, as there is good underlying intensity waiting to emerge.

The wine is very rich, concentrated and monolithic, with a certain raciness... (ST)" (4/2015) K&L Notes: According to the winery: "In stony, mineral-rich soils - and limestone and slate as well - premium-quality grapes thrive. Karl Holzapfel strives to create clear, vibrant wines with fine fruit and distinctive character, ideal for enjoying every day, as well as dry, compact Smaragd wines with complex aromas and flavors an...

2014 Rudi Pichler "Terrassen" Grüner Veltliner Federspiel Wachau (last of vintage) (Previously $44)

90 points Vinous: "Reflecting lower average altitude and a higher percentage of loess soil than this year’s “regular” Grüner Veltliner Federspiel bottling, this evokes bacon-laced fresh green beans on the nose, which then mingle with piquant, minerally chard on an expansive yet firm palate. Smoke, salt and pepper encourage salivation and invigoration in a gripping and refreshingly juicy finish that might otherwise have come off as a bit austere. (DS)" (5/2015)

2014 Prager Achleiten Stockkultur Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Wachau (Previously $74)

92 points Wine Spectator: "This crackles with intense spicy notes to the peach, ripe citrus, apricot and mango flavors, supported by plenty of toasty notes. There's a luscious creaminess on the finish. (KM)" (12/2015)

2014 Prager Wachtum Bodenstein Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Wachau (last of vintage) (Previously $74)

91 points Wine Spectator: "A minerally and suave tasting white, with intense savory notes to the green apple, ripe melon and lychee fruit flavors. The spicy finish offers some buttery accents. (KM, Web-2016)" 90 points Vinous: "Predictably high-toned floral and herbal aromas are mingled with less usual scents of pineapple and mirabelle, leading to a palate of strongly fruity cask, with one foot each in tropical and northerly realms. Satiny in texture and with pineapple-core tang playing against a plantain-like starchiness, this finishes with generous juiciness accented by invigorating piquancy of plum ...Read More »

2013 Bründlmayer "Vincents Spiegel" Grüner Veltliner Kamptal (last of vintage) (Previously $69)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "A creamy nose shows spikes of green freshness, reminiscent of fern or ivy. The palate holds peppery, citrusy spray with creamy generosity while white pepper and ripe pear appear at the seams. The long finish is whistle-clean. This will blossom into further aromatic intensity with a little age. Drink as of 2016. (AK)" (3/2015) 92 points Vinous: "From a vineyard that belongs to and is farmed and vinified by Bründlmayer’s son Vincent, this displays positive reduction in the nose in the form of nettle-like prickle, struck-flint pungency and sweet-smoky machine oil, these element ...Read More »

2013 Hiedler "Maximum" Grüner Veltliner Kamptal

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Not bottled until March, 2015, this full-bodied, multi-vineyard Grüner Veltliner offers a palate-saturating creamy yet juicy, tart-edged and savory amalgam of honeydew melon, rhubarb and blond tobacco. The influence of new acacia wood (from which it was removed in the spring of last year after completing primary fermentation and malo) is prominent but not inharmonious; and the finish billows in the manner of powerful waves as opposed to clouds.

2013 Bernhard Ott "Der Ott" Grüner Veltliner Wagram (Biodynamic) New!
2013 Bernhard Ott "Der Ott" Grüner Veltliner Wagram (Biodynamic)

91 points Vinous: "As usual, this bottling is informed largely by younger vines in Ott’s three top sites. A faintly cider-like spicy and tangy expression of apple is already evident in the nose, along with peony-like musky floral perfume and ocean spray. Subtly caramelized parsnip joins apple on the palate for a fascinating and by no means inharmonious interchange of sweet and pungent, fruit and root vegetable flavors. While less nuanced and enticing today than the corresponding Fass 4 bottling, this offers a striking combination of richness with buoyancy (at 12.8% alcohol ...Read More »

2013 Johann Bäuerl Pichl Point Grüner Veltliner Federspiel Wachau New!
2013 Johann Bäuerl Pichl Point Grüner Veltliner Federspiel Wachau

Bäuerl is a tiny Wachau estate located in the little village of Joching, up the street and behind the more famous Joseph Jamek. While Bäuerl's vineyards overlap Jamek's, the wines are quite different. Bäuerl's wines are lusty and earthy and well-structured, made by the young Johann Bäuerl.
