Steiner Vineyard Grüner Veltliner 2015

I don’t buy/drink much Carlisle white..maybe I should. Waxy, light lemon yellow tint. Dry, medium-weight, lemon, straw, grassy savory notes with a touch of earth/funk/‘shroom. Solid food accompaniment but really no ”wow”! — 2 months ago

Steiner Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

WNH Morgado Virtual Wine Tasting with winemaker Kimberley Hatcher and mentor Russell Bevan.

Coming from Steiner Vineyard in Bennett Valley (not familiar with the vineyard at all), this 2016 is, for me, in the same vein as a Kongsgaard or Hudson Chardonnay. When poured in the glass, it was golden and appeared oxidized. I anticipated it to be heavy and overly rich, but it wasn’t. Aromatically it showed honey roasted nuts, touch of orange marmalade, and herb crusted yellow fruits. On the palate, there is really nice acidity followed by more herbal yellow fruits, lemon cream pie crust and a finish showing a mix of cotton candy and lanolin. This goes through a similar “death and resurrection” type winemaking process (if I’m not mistaken), a process that John Kongsgaard made famous. It has a very Hudson/Carneros feel to it. Very enjoyable now.

Erich Salomon/Undhof

Ried Kögl 1 ÖWT Stein A.D. Donau Kremstal Riesling 2016

Subtle and classy dry Riesling from the premier cru Kögl vineyard. Exactly what you would hope for: gun flint, river stones, yellow apple, Meyer lemon, and that classic Austrian salty/mineral edge. $25

More info: harvested late October/early November. Unoaked. 1200 cases made, only 70 imported into the U.S.

From what I can gather: Salomon releases different versions of Riesling from the Kögl vineyard, however due to labeling restrictions the 2016 is the final vintage that will see a “Ried Kögl”. Evidently all versions moving forward must be called “Steiner Kögl”.

Honey, butterscotch and viscosity are the main descriptors that come to mind on the nose and palate. I think I also detected some slight oxidation. Excellent night with the WNH group. — 8 months ago
