2015 Rosi Schuster "Aus Den Dorfen" Gruner Veltliner Burgenland

SKU #1303605 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Hannes Schuster's 2015 Aus den Dörfern is a spectacular white wine made from 80% Grüner Veltliner and 20% diverse varieties planted not exactly as a field blend, but row by row which were all picked separately. One-third of the wine (from the Grüner Veltliner) has seen new oak, the rest was raised inox. The result is super-clear and precise on the nose and reveals a great purity and finesse on the palate. The finish has a lovely grip and reveals a lingering salinity and great tension. This is a gorgeous, medium-bodied and terroir-driven wine from gneiss (75%) and chalky soils (25%). Highly recommended!

91 points Wine & Spirits

 A bright, blue-fruited blaufrankisch, this delivers the generous ripeness of the warm 2013 while managing to remain fresh and lively. Fermented spontaneously in open-top vats and free of any new wood, its all about fruit and earth, with dark, chewy tannins that hold the flavors long and firm - and suggest that this will age well for another five or six years in the cellar.

K&L Notes

Importer's Notes: "Hannes Schuster finally gives us a Grüner Veltliner (90%) from his various vineyards from villages surrounding Burgenland’s Ruster Berg, where gneiss, schist, limestone and sand give rise to a complex and mineral dominated delicious wine. The remaining 10% of the cuvee are made up of a Gemischter Satz of various interplanted varieties, namely 2% Welschriesling, 2% Muskat Ottonel, 2% Weissburgunder, 2% Neuburger, 2% Furmint."

Additional Information:

Varietal:

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.
Country:

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.
