AUSTRIA

Austrian wine represents less than 1% of the total world wine production. Given that 75% of this is consumed on the domestic market, only a tiny amount will ever be available to export markets (0.25% of the total worldwide wine production). Up until the late 1980s, Austrian wine was considered to be sweet quaffing wine for tourists. After the wine scandal of 1985, the industry had extremely strict regulations imposed. Today, their wines are incredibly pure and of the highest quality. Gruner Veltliner continues to be the wine du jour on any reputable restaurant list.

TASTING NOTES

The geological elements of the soil in this site, makes Lamm unique and guarantees expressive, elegant Grüner Veltliner. The almost velvety nose of subtle sweet spice and profound yellow fruit aromas combines with a smokiness reminiscent of bees wax. The palate offers texture, transparent and balanced honey melon flavours and just a touch of residual sugar. The finish is long,...

TASTING NOTES

Thanks to the diversity of this site’s soil, with its ruddy weathered desert sandstone combining with volcanic compounds, the Heiligenstein produces a classically pure expression of Riesling. The flora and fauna that thrives in between the vines is usually found in far more southern Mediterranean areas.

TASTING NOTES

The Gaisberg vineyard is considered one of the best of the entire region owing to its South Easterly exposure. On the nose this starts out with a wave of citrus that becomes increasingly impressive with marzipan and peach. The wine’s voluminous body rapidly releases the fruit, the residual sugar perfectly offsetting its acidity. With an attractively lingering aftertaste, the wine...

TASTING NOTES

Light straw-yellow; there is a bunch of spices on the nose, with underlying yellow fruit aromas, delicate white pepper; the appley flavors are wrapped in a spicy veil. This succulent and mouthfilling offering glides really easily across the palate, with a nice echo. Good value for money. A perfect match with seafood and summer salads.

TASTING NOTES

Pointed, precise and spicy are the key words for the Heiligenstein Riesling in 2012. Eichinger consistently makes superb Riesling but this is a triumph. Apricots, peaches, citrus and almond compile an extremely complex palate with a decidedly white pepper spice finish. Excellent structure and rapier-like acidity makes this at once refreshing and age-worthy.
