Klausen Sauvignon Blanc 2017

If you tasted me blind on this and told me it was a top Chavignol Sancerre, I’d believe it. Perfect ripeness; pervasive mineral cut. No pyrazene, no candied grapefruit. #austria #sauvignonblanc — 9 months ago

T 26 Federspiel Grüner Veltliner 2014

8.2

Med - concentration with straw core and a clear rim. The nose and palate were both a little blah. Med intensity and complexity with underripe citrus, white flowers, apple skin, white pepper, and hay. The palate lacked grip even with med + acid. Med - complexity and short length. Nice for a patio pounder. #tegernseerhoff #wachau #austria #grunerveltliner #federspiel #t26 #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago

Umathum

Zweigelt 2015

Is this the best Umathum Zweigelt ever? Smells and tastes the way young Henri Jayer wines used to. Perfectly ripe, weightless, low alcohol (12.5%). Seems like it was cold soaked. Cranberry, umeboshi plum, cherries. Extraordinary! #zweigelt #umathum #burgenland #austria — a year ago

Weingut Gritsch Mauritiushof

1000-Eimerberg Federspiel Riesling 2015

One of my favorite wines of the year so far, so simple but so perfect in complexity and pleasure giving.
From a relatively unknown producer in the US except for the hard core Wachau enthusiasts, the 1000 Eimerberg Riesling Federspiel from Gritsch Mauritiushof is so good right now. A vibrant and electric yellow color with a slight green tint. The nose is lively and energetic with fresh sweet lemons, a little apple and lots of sweet aromatic white flowers. The palate is medium bodied but dense and focused adding a layer of rock to the mineral core. The acidity is just right and perfectly balanced providing tension to the fruit and floral spectrum this delivers. Do yourself a favor and Google search 1000 Eimerberg and check out this crazy steep vineyard.

Full and attractively oaked with a nice balance between fruit and spice. Not your everyday #sauvignonblanc but delicious and pairs well with crab. #fxpichler #austria #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago

8.7

Really unique nose with med + intensity and complexity. Notes of lychee, rose, white flowers, lime, wax, white pepper, and spice. A blend of pretty and earthy. the palate was much less expressive with a light body and med - complexity. Firm acid and a clean finish made this wine easy to drink. #strauss #muskateller #austria #ctbucklinwine — 2 years ago

Rudi Pichler

Wösendorfer Kirchweg Smaragd Riesling 2014

Fresh, tensile and loaded with filigree structure, this is one sharp and linear dry Riesling. The cooler vintage is apparent, but I still get some peach, honey, and then the citrus parade starts with lime, lemon and pink grapefruit. An underlying saline and smoky mineral note completes the terroir expression. Complex. Gorgeous. Oddly enough this would pair exceptionally with some ice cold raw oysters with just a spritz of lemon juice.
