2012 Tschida Angerhof Grüner Veltliner Ice Wine Burgenland (375ml)

SKU #1211290 96 points Wine & Spirits

 "I’m drinking this," one panelist said, defiantly flaunting our tastings protocol. She wasn’t the only one. The scent alone is hypnotic, heady as the scent rising off a pot of simmering apricot jam. Then there are the swaths of silken, honeyed flavor wrapping around the tongue, spicy, almond-toned, with bright, lifting tangerine acidity. Those flavors linger, a single sip lasting for five minutes, wanting nothing but silence to take it all in. Eiswein doesn’t come often to Hans Tschida’s vineyards on the banks of Lake Neusiedl, so grab this now.  (4/2016)

K&L Notes

From the Hans Tschida: "In 1993 we decided to focus on winegrowing. We work according to a special philosophy in the vineyard and the cellar aiming at certain kinds of wine with clear fruit and a perfect balance between residual sugar and acid. Our qualified - tested wine- Beerenauslesen, Eiswein, Schilfwein, Trockenbeerenauslesen -- is cultivated with the help of exceptionally soft, cool and slow fermentation. We are lucky because Nationalpark Neusiedlersee/Seewinkel -- the region which you can find our vineyards in -- offers optimum conditions for the production of special sweet wines of highest quality."

Gruner Veltliner

- Grüner Veltliner is the most widely planted grape variety in Austria, making up about a third of all the vineyard land in the country, according to importer extraordinaire Terry Thiese. The varietal has definitely increased in popularity of the past few years, as sommeliers and wine directors loaded their lists with this spicy white because it pairs well with so many things. Its bouquet has been described as floral, tending to toward musky, with hints of peppery greens, lentils, citrus and red fruit with a distinctive mineral quality. In the mouth the wine can be broad or precise, but is almost always distinguished by bracing acidity and flavors that mirror the nose. A notoriously good ager, you can drink GrüVes in their youth, or let them evolve in complexity in your cellar.


- Austria is a well-respected wine-growing region in Europe. Yet, even though they make about a third the volume of wine as Germany, not many of these fine bottles make it to the shelves of American wine merchants or restaurants. Lucky for us, their anonymity has translated into incredible value from simple, everyday whites to exquisite dessert wines. Austria shares many grape varieties with Germany—Riesling is king here, too. But the style of Austrian whites is much dryer and more potent. Grüner Veltliner is Austria's second-most-important varietal and makes whites of great versatility and pleasure. Click for a list of bestselling items from Austria.
