2009 Umathum "Frauenkirchen vom Stein" St-Laurent Burgenland (Previously $62)

SKU #1271616 91 points Wine & Spirits

 Umathum pulled this wine from a one-hectare patch of extremely gravelly soil (thus the vineyard name, vom stein, or “of stone”). In 2009, the drainage that soil afforded was key, as it rained quite a bit that summer; by September, however, the skies cleared and it stayed warm into October. Between the wine’s age and its measured ripeness, it feels beautifully balanced, the scents richly woodsy and the flavor spicy, earthy and bright with still-vibrant acidity. It lasts with notes of cedar, rose and herbs, a gentle wine for a mushroom pasta.  (4/2015)

Jancis Robinson

 Dark bright crimson. Attractively fresh fruit. Real zest. Lots of acidity but sufficiently convincing fruit weight to counterbalance it. Youthful. Vigorous. Good potential.  (11/2011)

Austria

- 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.
