2014 Salomon Undhof "Wieden & Berg" Grüner Veltliner

SKU #1273300 90 points Vinous

 Succulent and with a satisfying sense of hidden sweetness (though analytically dry), this year’s rendition favors the character of Wieden and its tiny-berried vine selection in a concentrated amalgam of sweet pea, haricots verts, lentil and green herbs. Generously juicy and saliva-inducingly saline, it delivers intriguing undertones of wet stone and ore-like minerality, finishing with the stimulating addition of pea tendril and melon rind bitterness. (DS)  (2/2016)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2014 Grüner Veltliner Wieden & Berg offers a very clear and pure, deep, fresh, and elegant bouquet of white fruits and crushed stones. Medium-bodied, pretty juicy and very well balanced, this is a fresh and well-structured Veltliner with fine acidity and a good grip in the finish. Very delicate and food-friendly. (SR)  (4/2016)

Wine Spectator

 A crunchy mix of ripe citrus and green apple flavors flanked by notes of white pepper. The minerally finish offers notes of dried sage and crisp acidity. (Web Only-2016)

K&L Notes

The Wieden vineyard is located adjacent to the 220-year-old winery itself. Cuttings from this vineyard have gone on to populate the terraces of the Kreuzberg vineyard. Here's a Grüner with punch and pedigree, for a reasonable fee. Stelvin closure.

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.
