2013 Muhr-Van Der Niepoort Spitzerberg Blaufränkisch Carnuntum

SKU #1328954 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2013 Spitzerberg opens pure and floral on the concentrated nose. On the palate, this is a concentrated, dense and juicy Blaufränkisch with firm tannins, grip and tension. Again, this is a red that was fighting for ripeness but finally achieved it in combination with remarkable concentration, acidity and tension. This is a great Spitzerberg that is concentrated, firm and fresh but not as generous or flowing free over the palate like the 2015. (SR)  (10/2017)

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.
