Wonderful acidity. A little frizzante. Perfect with Asian food tonight. Love this wine. Perfect match for lightly breaded General Tso chicken. — a day ago

Hochrain Grüner Veltliner 2011

Бананы, киви, лаймовый курд, сочное желтое яблоко, молодая морковь с ботвой, фисташки, медоносы, едва ощутимый фоновый дрожжевой тон. Среднее тело с мягкой, но не плоской кислотностью. Вначале кажется чуть усталым, но быстро расходится и свежеет. Не поражает детальностью и глубиной, но сделано очень слаженно и гармонично, чисто. Выпивается незаметно. — 22 days ago

Seductive aromatics with yellow plum, apricot and passion fruit. On the palate very smooth and with a round mouthfeel... yet with great purity & precision. Apricot, nettle, white pepper.l plus nice minerality. Steals your heart away and begs for another sip. An amazing wine. — 16 days ago

Ried Pfaffenberg Steiner Riesling

Very good quality with a cut through acidic backbone that is putting some nerve to the ripe but fresh fruit, mineral complexity and varietal faithfulness on both the nose and palate, the latter which is driven by a solid fatigue and a good lenght. — 3 days ago

Rotes Tor Federspiel Grüner Veltliner 2015

Невыразительный нос. Хвоя, лимонная цедра, топленое молоко, потом лежалая антоновка. Зажато, но тем не менее, сочно и минерально, чуть жарко. Дать хорошо подышать - вкус гармонизируется. Серьезное вино, хоть и сложно к нему подступиться. — 14 days ago

Difficult vintage but after 10y it shines!
Amazing aromatics with apricots and a touch of honey and apples. The wow happens on the palate - liquid gold. Great purity & precision with juicy acidity flowing around the fruit and the spice. This goes on forever. Wow.
From magnum.

Honestly I’m having a tough time figuring out what I think of this wine. It’s certainly somewhat classic and well made, with the petrol nose, the mouth filling density, the tons of hanging acid on the finish. But for some reason it’s just not all coming together for me. Still nice. — 14 days ago

Delicious, fresh and complex example of a Riesling. Good body, some green aromas and mineralogy also. Delicious. — 8 days ago

Wösendorfer Hochrain Smaragd Riesling 2011

Good. Fleshy, but driven by an excellent balance
Fruit, very floral, dairy with herbs
It reminded me of a fresh Toma from alpeggio
Great freshness and quite steely mineral
Long, but not superlong
