2014 Salomon Undhof "Wieden & Berg" Grüner Veltliner
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.

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)
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)
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.
