Niederösterreich, Austria


Gaisberg Riesling 2017

Stands out from the always excellent Skurnick Riesling portfolio. From both ends of the spectrum, it’s neither laser sharp nor sweet and deep. It’s a powerhouse - voluptuous, creamy, luscious, and concentrated. Overtly aromatic and very grand. Think Viognier.

Orange and fleshy ripe peach with bitter fuzzy skin.

These top of the shelf Rieslings from in this case also a top producer in the Wachau last forever. I suspect this has 10 more years.

@Pinotman /// Andreas - just noticed the hat Delectable flagged this as Riesling. It was actually the GV. Now corrected. Great wine!

Sparkling Rosé Blend

Huber Sparkling Rose from Austria. Sparkling rose is crisp and refreshing. I am currently enjoying on a sunny patio and couldn't be more pleased. Nothing special or unique but really hitting the spot right now. — a day ago


Liebenberg Smaragd Riesling 2009

Spicy Apricots on nose and palate with honey notes and mineral. Luscious on the mid palate with muted acid finishing dry. 13% ABV. Fully mature. Showed more citrus when it was younger. One of the 1001 Wines. These Austrian Rieslings deserve more of our attention. — 14 days ago

@Bob McDonald No need to be sorry, much appreciated. I am sure I have a reputation mfor being a PIA for always asking for vintages when they are omitted. I feel if one goes to the trouble of posting a note the omission of a vintage diminishes the usefulness of that note.

Not sure how to describe the scent. Fruity but sour to the taste. Blueberry? — 3 days ago

This is a delicious wine with notes of stone fruits, a dash of white pepper, and a kiss of stone fruit. Plenty of mineral notes, too. — 11 days ago

Terrassen Grüner Veltliner

Greenish yellow. Very floral, white peach, full of a sunny spring day... Hint of honeysuckle up front with a slight effervescence followed by a very dynamic mineral acidity mix and a sharp but awaiting the next zip finish! Great wine overall, very good value. Paired with a clam tapa topped with a Serrano pepper slice; the combination was just amazing. The hint of sweetness from the Grüner Veltliner really cut the spicyness. — 9 days ago
