2014 Allram Gaisberg Grüner Veltliner Erste Lage Kamptal

SKU #1254123 90 points Wine Enthusiast

 A rather closed nose leads to a citric, ever so slightly peppery palate. The body approaches on light feet, with an almost weightless freshness. If you like it feather-light, this is your wine, just a silky touch of bracing acidity and an ultraclean finish. (AK)  (3/2016)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The Grüner Veltliner Gaisberg 1ÖTW is very clear and fresh nose, fresh & crisp with bright fruit aromas, leafy notes, lemon flavors. Intense, juicy and very piquant, this GV is well balanced, with freshness, nice purity and grip.  (10/2016)

K&L Notes

Liter bottles of Grüner are a must-have for any regular wine drinker, they're so food-friendly, affordable and fun, and the one from Allram never disappoints. But sometimes we long for something a bit more sophisticated, but don't want to have to sacrifice freshness or value. The Gaisberg Reserve walks that fine line perfectly. This fabulous Grüner can stand up to hearty fare like veal schnitzel, but will also drink with your favorite spicy Asian dishes too. This is a Direct Import for us at K&L, and it's an estate producing great wines from some of the top sites in the Kamptal.

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.
